9780879306977: Larry Coryell's Power Jazz Guitar: Extending Your Creative Reach

(Book). More than a method or exercise book, this guide challenges jazz guitarists to increase originality in their thinking and playing. Master player Larry Coryell takes readers deep inside the music to make connections between ideas and the guitar fretboard, helping them unlock their own creativity. This book/CD set builds logically from basic ideas to more advanced techniques, which Coryell explains in fine detail. He highlights musical ways to understand complex jazz concepts and presents his unique approach to improvisation by providing exciting new ways to play scales, intervals, arpeggios, melody and chords. Emphasizing group interaction and solos that sizzle, Coryell taps his decades of experience as a performer to offer insights into inventive, powerful ensemble playing. "This book should open the door to a better understanding in our quest for advanced guitar playing." Al DiMeola

About the Author:

Larry Coryell is one of the leading pioneers of jazz-rock and fusion. Since the mid-1960s, he has played guitar live and in the studio with such acclaimed guitarists as John McLaughlin, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Paco De Lucia, Pat Metheny and Al DiMeola, as well as Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Billy Cobham, Charles Mingus, Stephane Grappelli, Chick Corea, and many other great jazz musicians. His recent albums include Inner Urge, New High, and Monk, 'Trane, Miles & Me. This book is so much more than a "how to play jazz guitar" guide. It is a look deep inside how jazz guitar genius Larry Coryell thinks when he plays, and how that process reveals the "feeling" in the music. Brimming with musical examples, exercises and transcriptions of Coryell's solos, plus a CD recorded by Coryell himself, this book encourages jazz guitarists to set their sights on new horizons in creativity and technique - and helps them get there.
