I can never play anything but the most basic jazz: a few 7/9 chords. But seeing the struggles even a great player like him has gone through along with his humility is inspiring. There's no reason I can't work hard, find my own voice, and reach my own level.
Loved Herbie Hancock's teaching style. He gives some real, solid, usable advice on improvisation and composition. He also gives a lot of inspiration by playing and by telling the stories behind his compositions and improvisations. The transcriptions in the workbook are really useful too.
Great start to lift up the subject to high level view, to see the bigger picture of Jazz --> Music --> LIFE
Good tips on tecnique and opened my mind about reharmonizations. Good transcriptions. Thanks
