Sound Ideas #94 - Listening at Jazz Camp
Any aspiring jazz student of the 1970s and 1980s likely spent a week, once, twice or more at one of Jamey Aebersold's jazz improvisation clinics. These roadshows of clinicians, all of which were jazz greats in their own, brought an in-depth exposure of jazz to young minds for one week per city in the summer. Theory, ear training, and performance were a big part of the curriculum, but so too was listening. Jamey spun discs and made us listen critically to the masters, all as part of our training as the next generation of jazz players and keepers of the swing. In this hour, we'll listen to some of the recordings that were a key part of Jamey's clinics of that era.
