Inhaltsangabe: The Shape Method for Jazz Improvisation offers a unique approach to learning improvisation. By focusing on the underlying concepts of rhythmic and melodic shape it offers students a framework to unlock the secrets of the phrasing of master improvisers. This approach liberates the learner from scale/chord relationships and "lick" playing and enables them to create their individual jazz voice within the tradition. Each chapter includes a discussion of a rhythmic and pitch-based melodic shape concept, examples of these concepts from master improvisers, suggested listening relevant to the concepts, and composition and performance exercises.
