Ruby:The Guitar Artistry of Oscar Alemán Sunday September 22 2019 at 1:30 PM

WICA Campus
× Greg Ruby: The Guitar Artistry of Oscar Alemán – Accompaniment and the Art of the Out Chorus

Oscar Alemán’s inimitable style of swing guitar playing reaches back to the earliest days of Hot Club jazz. Before Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli recorded their first notes as the Quintette of Hot Club of France, Alemán was already an in-demand guitarist on the 1930’s Parisian jazz scene—leading Josephine Baker’s backing band, performing with ex-patriot American jazz musicians, and even receiving an offer to join the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Without question, Ellington was correct when he remarked about Alemán, “this cat has roots.”

While much attention has been given to learn Django’s style, this workshop will demystify and make accessible Oscar’s unique approach to music. In Accompaniment and the Art of the Out Chorus, expect to dive into Oscar’s unique accompaniment style of using rhythm, arpeggios, chordal accents, and ostinato figures to back up a soloist. The class will also cover Alemán’s classic Out-Chorus’s melodies to “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “Bye Bye Blues,” and “I’ve Got Rhythm.”

van Hemert: Violin Improv System Sunday September 22 2019 at 1:30 PM

WICA Campus
× During this workshop, Christiaan will explain his system for violin improvisation. The system is very different from the standard academic ways of learning improvisation. It is based on a novel approach that will teach you concepts to make you sound like an authentic jazz improviser while avoiding too much complicated theory. This will enable to the user to employ his creativity while still making (a lot) of harmonic sense. It is recommended for participants to be familiar with chord symbols.
