Product Details


The Evolution of Solo Jazz Piano is a study of solo piano styles developed by 24 of the most influential solo pianists from 1900 to the present. In order to clearly illustrate the specific contributions of the various pianists, Bill Dobbins composed a theme based on the well-known standard "All of Me." By applying the stylistic approaches of the different pianists to the same theme, one becomes aware of the subtle yet evocative elements of each individual style. Common elements between Waller, Ellington, Tatum, Monk and Rowles, Tatum, Hines and Wilson, Smith and Ellington, Corea and Beirach etc., should make it clear that musical individuality is largely the result of the subconscious emphasis of some musical elements over others, rather than the self-conscious cultivation of originality for its own sake. We sincerely hope that this DVD may serve as a stimulus toward the further study of the solo jazz piano tradition in particular and for creative music in general. De façon à montrer clairement les contributions particulières des différents pianistes, Bill Dobbins a composé un thème basé sur le changement d'accords très connu d'un classique du jazz All Of Me. En appliquant les approches stylistiques des différents pianistes au même thème, chacun devient conscient des éléments subtils mais cependant évocateurs de chaque style individuel.
