Abstract

My recital will feature jazz music from different decades in the 20th century. The program will feature well known jazz standard tunes from influential artists such as John Coltrane, Joe Henderson, Miles Davis, Steve Swallow, and others. The program will include both solo jazz arrangements for piano such as ‘Alone Together', ‘Quiet Now', and ‘Falling Grace' as well as jazz combo arrangements featuring drums, bass, and trumpet. The jazz music will include different styles of jazz such as ‘swing', ‘modal', and ‘bebop'. In doing so, this will allow me to demonstrate a variety of ways to play and improvise over the various songs adding to the listener experience of the recital. The recital will also include improvisational solos by other combo members including drum solos, trumpet solos, and bass solos.
