This manual contains complementary information for that included in my previous texts regarding contemporary jazz improvisation techniques. As we all know John Coltrane revolutionized the harmonic concept of modern jazz sax improvisation. Other performers such as Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordons, Wayne Shorter, Cannonball Adderley, Michael Brecker and Bob Berg also made incredible contributions to Modern sax performance. We must also include trumpet performers such as Freddy Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Clifford Brown, Chet Baker, Kenny Dorham, Wallace Roney, Tom Harrel, Randy Brecker and Roy Hargrove among others who also added new sounds and scales to this harmonic concept shift. From a technical perspective the book contains exercises for scale inversions, phrase lines from transcriptions, arpeggios, chromatisms and passing tones (lineal and intervallic structures) applied to: Major Scales +11 Lydian +5 +8 Dominant 7 Altered Symmetric diminished Whole tone scale +11 Lydian flat 7 Minor Scales Minor Dorian mode Minor Major 7 The objective is to play the exercises in all twelve tones starting each phrase from any scale note according to the corresponding chord at any given point. These exercises and line phrases are presented as 8th and 16th notes as rhythmic notations. Arpeggios as well as ascendant and descendant scales will be played in both lineal and intervallic modes. The transcriptions include emblematic line phrases by Keith Jarret, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordons, Freddy Hubbard, Tom Harrel and Wallace Roney. This project is an extension of a ten chapter collection on improvisation by the same author: •Improvise Now •240 Chromatic Exercises + 1165 Jazz Lines Phrases •Herbie Hancock. The Blue Note Years •John Coltrane & Michael Brecker Legacy •Chris Potter Jazz Styles •Bidirectional Contemporary Jazz Improvisation •New Conception for Linear & Intervalic Jazz Improvisation •Stage of the Art: Postbop Intervalic Jazz Improvisation Exercises and Line Phrases. •Common Tone Sequences for Contemporary Jazz Improvisation •Inventions and Dimensions Michael Brecker Jazz Style

Learn how to create your own etudes in the style of your favorite musicians! Doing so reveals their favorite phrases and stylistic tendencies, allowing you to better understand and absorb their approach and concept (plus, there are unique, hip etudes that will be fun to play and share with your friends and students). Well-known pianist David Hazeltine used this method to develop his own style and refined it over the years to help his students. Now, it is available in book form for all who want to master the art of better phrasing. This is not a piano book. This is a single-line approach designed for all instrumentalists, including piano. "David Hazeltine is, quite simply, one of the finest musicians I've had the chance to perform with in my two-plus decades as a professional musician. Over the years, I've asked Dave to show me some of his harmonic and melodic concepts. Most times, he'll present me with a portion of one of his etudes that he's come up with. I've found them all to be tremendously informative. They are crafted in a way that makes the concepts contained in each exercise very organic, and readily accessible to me in my own improvisations. Dave's meticulous study of the masters of his instrument has yielded a treasure trove of information. His etudes are designed to maximize the internalization of particular styles and modern Jazz language in general. I'm confident that this book will provide countless hours---years even---of enjoyment and learning to all who take the time to look into the mind and the learning process of this brilliant musician." ---Eric Alexander

This research focuses on the development of new theoretical concepts, parameters and methods for the creation of so-called ‘harmonic balance’ in modern jazz ‘line’ (improvisation and composition). The research is primarily concerned with the question: How can (the different) improvisational approaches introduced in the late 1960s by John Coltrane and in the 1980s by saxophonists Steve Coleman, Gary Thomas and Greg Osby be developed in new contemporary saxophone improvisational practice? It investigates the common denominators (intervallic content, rhythmic integrity, pattern and phrase structure) in non-traditional,chordal and scalic improvisational theory, and the ways in which they contribute to linear balance. The research identifies, analyses and assimilates existing relevant harmonic material and improvisational processes, and applies these to both the composition and performance of specific études. This process enables the researcher to develop unique and idiosyncratic creative approaches, ones that will inform both practical jazz-making and theoretical pedagogy.
