Pathways to Parker (Treble Clef)
Pathways to Parker (Treble Clef)
Improvise, Learn, and Create Jazz Solos using the language of Charlie Parker


 

This book was created to catalog the melodic pattern material performed by Charlie Parker for over sixty of his transcribed solos. It also comes with an APP called Pathways to Parker. The APP mirrors the book to make it convenient for students to download onto electronic devices.

The patterns are organized by the key and chord type in which they were originally performed. The performer may use the patterns at their discretion, in the original key, or transpose them as needed.

The teacher may use these patterns in a number of creative ways by providing new source material for the professional musician who would like to expand their jazz vocabulary.

All patterns are one measure in length. Patterns may be joined together as the improviser sees fit, however, proper voice leading and chaining of patterns will produce more musical ideas.

Rationale:

As a music educator with 30 years of experience, I have witnessed and worked with students who have a desire to learn jazz improvisation, but have a very limited jazz vocabulary. With proper guidance, Pathways to Parker may become an essential new resource by which students can learn, internalize, and apply musical ideas in unique ways.
