Welcome to Active Listening in Jazz
For years, I have been waiting for someone to create a series of videos about this topic. With all the millions of videos, movies, blogs and books out there about jazz, I have not found anything that explains Jazz to non-musicians in a way that promotes their understanding of the intellectual process that is going on in the Jazz musician’s mind.
So before I get started with this I want to tell you a couple of words about myself. My name is Dan Adler. I play guitar. I try to play Jazz. I’ve been playing for many years. I’ve recorded a few albums.
And my recent one is called ‘Friends On The Moon‘ and that’s with Arnon Palty who helped write half of the music and Donald Vega the great pianist and Byron Landham the great drummer. And so that’s my musical side.
I plan to interview some of my favorite Jazz musicians and give them the opportunity to explain their thought process in layman’s terms, so that we may all elevate our appreciation of this unique and creative art form.
If you have been curious about Jazz, I hope this helps you become a more active listener. If you are a Jazz musician, I hope you will share this with your friends and family.
