I recently stumbled across this master class by Gary Lindsay so I thought it would be beneficial to post here for class members. I don’t know Gary personally, but I have heard terrific things about him from friends of mine that have attended the University of Miami for jazz studies.
Gary has published an awesome jazz arranging book called Jazz Arranging Techniques. If you don’t have it, I suggest you pick it up and add it to your arsenal for study.
As any great educator does, Gary makes complex points and concepts very simple and teaches them in a very systematic manner. This video does not seem to start at the very beginning of the master class, but it does start at a logical place for understanding voicings and how they are put together. It is over one hour long, so be sure you have a pencil and paper handy to take notes! If you have any questions, leave them below and I will do my best to answer them.
