THU.07.APR Swing University-DID YOU HEAR THAT-3 

 February 7, 2022

By  Evan

About This Event:

Part one was hearing surprise, part two was hearing style, part three is learning to hear improvised solos on a deeper level. We generally acknowledge the importance of the improvised solo, but to learn how to hear improvisation on a deeper level, it helps to think of it as a language. Learn how to develop literacy as a listener to benefit more from inspirational solo artistry.

This course is hosted by Jazz at Lincoln Center and marks their return to in-person "Swing University" programming.
