The music known as jazz has evolved into a global art form since its inception over one hundred years ago in America.

This lesson on "Developing Jazz Vocabulary" is a way to get more "hands on" sources for students of all ages to find entry into this art form.

Let us not forget, the deeper you listen the more profound the swinging, lyrical details of this music becomes. Many times, when talking about improvising, the first lesson of improvisation is the one where you must listen to people who do it.

Check it out and enjoy ;

I misread the subject. I thought you meant creating a jazz vocabulary which would be more interesting to me, rather than learning "the" jazz vocabulary.

I haven't found listening to jazz can radically alter my sound. Maybe I am just too old. Baby birds learn their song from adults but when deprived of hearing that, they will end up singing a crude version from a primal genetic template.
