The Gift of Jazz introduces new online courses and is very pleased to announce that Peter Stoltzman will be leading their Saturday classes this semester.

Saturdays 11:30 am – 12:45 pm – Jazz Composition Workshop: Re-imagining Standards through Arrangements & Contrfacts (click here to sign up for the free Zoom video conferencing app)

We will compare and contrast the creative ways that jazz artists have re-imagined standards. From Charlie Parker’s “Half Nelson” (a contrafact of Tad Dameron’s “Lady Bird”) to Geoff Keezer’s “All the Things You Are” (a nearly indecipherable arrangement of the Richard Rogers classic), students will take inspiration from jazz masters to create their own contrafacts and arrangements of jazz standards.
