#1: Letters From Camp - My experience at Jamey Aebersold Jazz Workshop

Posted on 2006-07-12 14:13:59 by Chip L

With my name inked on my Tshirt and underwear labels, I headed off last
week to the Jamey Aerbersold Jazz Workshop in Louisville.. Here are
some thoughts on the experience.

- There is a place for everyone. I met a woman who had been playing
drums for 3 months.

- The faculty is incredible - David Baker, Jerry Coker, Rufus Reid, Dan
Haerle to name a few.

- The music was fantastic - Faculty/Pro concerts at lunch, dinner, and
after dinner. Heard 20-25 different Pro/Fac combos

- The guitar instructors were a fun bunch all great players
- Corey Christiansen - The constant joker - never serious except
when he's playing
- Mike Diliddo - Miami Dade prof with the Gabe Kaplan delivery is
an excellent teacher
- Fred Henderson - Fred is the spiritual philosopher of the group.
- Dave Stryker - Close rival to Corey as the biggest joker. Lots
of fun. Great player.
- Scott Henderson - The serious intellectual
- Steve Erqiuaga - The running joke was that Erqiuaga was changing
his name ... to Bob Erqiuaga
In talking with the guitar staff, they were enjoying the week as
much as the participants.

Participants - About 50/50 kids and adults for all over the world.
Meeting the participants was one of my favorite aspects of the camp. I
made a point to sit with a different group every meal. By the end of
the workshop, we were making a point to stop by and see each others
combo performance finale.

Audition - You audition (and take a theory test) on day one (I had
Scott and Fred Henderson). Lasted 2 minutes a the most. Comped to Pent
Up House and soloed over the changes. Much less a deal than I had
expected.

Groups - Based on your theory test, you are place in one of 3 level
theory classes. I was Dan Haerle's Intermediate class which was about
right. Note: Many participants admittedly cheated to get into David
Bakers Advanced Theory class.

Combo - Based on your audition and theory score, you are placed in one
of 60 combos. The #1 guitarist, the #1 pianist, #1 Drummer, #1 Sax, etc
make up the first combo. I must have played the solo of my life at my
audition because I immediately felt over my head with my group. While
my comping is strong, my solo work is weak. My combo instructor,
bassist Frank Smith, encouraged my to stay but I was very frustrated at
the end of day 1. I dropped down several combos and had a great time
the rest of the week.

Favorite Musician - Hands down my favorite musician was a drummer named
Steve Davis from Tampa Fla. He was guy everyone was talking about the
next day. You could not take your eyes off the guy. He used about
every percussive object within his reach including playing 1) his music
stand, 2) the wooden floor, and the zipper on his stick bag. Showboat?
Yea. Interesting and Exciting? YEA!

Observations -
- You stay busy from 7am - 10pm
- Its a great deal - $700 for room, all meals, the workshop and 4-5
hours a day of first class band performances.
- The workshop help 'calibrate' me. I have a better idea of what
and how I need to practice, what I need to listen to (less guitar
players and more great horn/piano players), how pros play tunes (I
never 'traded 4's before), and which tunes I need to learn

I didn't realize how much I enjoyed the workshop until I returned home.
Did I lean alot? Absolutely. Do I have a lot to learn? ABSOLUTELY!
Will I go back in the future? I hope so.

Is this Frank Smith the bass player from indianapolis? If it is he's a nice

He plays in Lynne Ariale's trio. I once did a Kiwanis or chamber of commerce
or something christmas gig with him when he lived near here. Basically
jazzed up christmas tunes. I was way over my head on that one. He was very
supportive (and quiet!!) and asked me about math rather than talk about
jazz!

Sounds like a good experience. Did you get recordings of your combo?

if you are near Lousiville, do you go to the annual jazz guitar concerts at
Belarmine?

Thanks Chip - very thorough review!

&gt;&gt;Combo - Based on your audition and theory score, you are placed in one
of 60 combos.&lt;&lt;

That is EXACTLY where NGW was so unbelievably weak - technically
it was a weak of whole day instruction in small classes. IN practice
it was less than 5 full days - about 5hrs a day (rest were faculty
concerts, special guests etc) and my class had 8 people in it.
But the biggest problem was that absolutely NO TIME whatsoever
was assigned to jamming together. I live in Austin so I did not have
to pay for room and board so $700 for about 25hrs of instruction was
a bit steep. Next year I will definitely sign up for Aebersold camp.

Cheers,

JT

JA is about scheuled like this (f/ 8:30a - 10p)

Theory and Ear Training (Large Class) 2.5 hrs
Master Class (Guitar) Small Group 1.5 hours
Combo (small group 6-8) 2.5 hours
Faculty concerts 4-5 hours
including dinner and lunch

There can be so many combos because its not a guitar workshop. Probably
60% horn players (mostly sax). They limit some insturments (like
guitars) and encourage others to get as many combos as possible

&gt; &gt; &gt; stand, 2) the wooden floor, and the zipper on his stick bag. Showboat?
&gt; &gt; &gt; Yea. Interesting and Exciting? YEA!
&gt; &gt; He plays in Lynne Ariale's trio. I once did a Kiwanis or chamber of commerce
&gt; &gt; or something christmas gig with him when he lived near here. Basically
&gt; &gt; jazzed up christmas tunes. I was way over my head on that one. He was very
&gt; &gt; supportive (and quiet!!) and asked me about math rather than talk about
&gt; &gt; jazz!
&gt;
&gt; Yea. This is Steve.

Steve Davis used to live around here (Bloomington, IN) until about two
years ago. He is my favorite drummer. We used to get together at his
little studio in Nashville, IN and just play. Best recordings I've ever
done from a studio standpoint - hearing CD quality mix through your
headphones while you are recording.

My wife did all her recordings in his studio with him on drums. Actually
I believe Frank Smith plays bass on the latest two.

In the four or so years he lived here we were close to record a project
together several times. It always busted because of scheduling and we
couldn't agree about what to record (he's is really into Lynne's stuff -
reworked pop and standard tunes - very structured, I always wanted to
just improvise and be loose).

Glad you had a good time. I've been looking around for something like
this and the Aebersold Workshop seems right up my alley. Just the
chance to get new ears listening to your music and giving you insight
would be worth it.

I'm curious: what things do you feel you need to work on now? Were
they things that you were aware of before the workshop? Or did your
time there really open up new areas for improvement?

I've been told that this
<a href="http://www.stanfordjazz.org/" target="_blank">http://www.stanfordjazz.org/</a>
is one of the best camps, certainly the quality of instructors is very high

Did you mean Fred Hamilton instead of Henderson? I know that he is a
very spiritual person, and does the JA camps a lot. He and Dan Hearle
are faculty at the University of North Texas College of Music.

I knew my weaknesses going in but didn't realize they were so weak.

1. Improvisation. Even the weakest horn players were decent soloist.
They learn as children to read, improv and play jazz tunes f/ charts.
Even if you are a strong comper, if you can't solo to jazz tunes, you
may be very frustrated at JA. I was. JA doesn't teach you to solo
(main reason I went). They assume that you come in with some ability
and they give you some ideas to work on when you leave.

2. Broadening my listening. I listen to way too many jazz guitaist. 90%
of my CDs are jazz guitarist. I just never liked the horn tunes or
bands w/o guitarists.. I have a new appreciation for these tunes and
immediately came home and started listening to more Charlie Parker,
Sonny Rollins, Miles, etc and adding these tunes to my book.

3. I've played in several jazz band but we never 'traded 4's&quot; where
each solost traded 4 bars w/ the drummer. Every band did it almost
every tune.

4. Better comping with a bass player. Stacking intervals in 4ths.
Playing cords w/o the root (not just common chords w/o the root but new
chords forms (for me) away f/ the root).

&gt; they things that you were aware of before the workshop? Or did your
&gt; time there really open up new areas for improvement?

Yeah he's great. I have started a blog about jazz and myself
concerning it and will have the first official post of the next week at
UNT. I hope my experience is as informative as yours as been!
