Re: Good jazz books
Its great to see comments about listening. My teacher asked me: Are you listening to the bass line? I told him no, I wasn't, I was just in my own world trying to keep time. He said nobody ever answered no before and I got a gold start for honesty. It was a pretty funny moment.
My favorite listening tool lately is the Blue Note Record App for the iPAd. Its all the blue note label and you can set it on random. That's how I discovered The Little Rasti by Donald Byrd.
Great stuff. I am learning how to listen and I am back in school, Jazz Studies too.
I keep asking myself, what did I get myself into? Than I practice triplets.
