Eric Alexander and Eric Reed

Eric Reed and Eric Alexander will touch on the important areas of study for anyone interested in jazz improvising. There will be a focus on the process of intense listening and transcription, developing proper instrument technique, and cultivating sound that suits the player’s physicality, an essential area of study but one that is quite elusive. These jazz masters will also discuss the importance of actual playing as opposed to simply practicing, and the need for jam sessions and gigs of all sorts, which is the best way to learn.
