Many of you have received a good news from Andrew announcing the return of Django in June next year. Part of the email talked about Jack's new video series based on the tunes that will be a part of standards Vol 2 Django in June package. I'll be posting Jack's videos here, with his approval, to help with traffic and spreading the word. Below is copied from Andrew's email that talks about these videos and the video below that...
New Monthly Video Series from Jack Soref
Over the course of the next 8 months, the intrepid Jack Soref will be preparing a second (10 song) volume of Gypsy Jazz Standards for Django in June. To make it easier for you to absorb the material, he’ll be releasing at least one tune a month starting...now!
Each packet of material will include:
a video lesson geared toward Level 1 and 2 learners;
a lead sheet and (sometimes) other written materials;
and links to recommended performances of the tune.
First up: I Found A New Baby. Jack's focus in this lesson is on melodic interpretation, with illustrations from Ethel Waters, Frank "Big Boy" Goudie and Bireli Lagrene. You'll find that lesson on this page of the website. Links to all the support materials are in the description below the video.
There's no charge for the series, but there is a Donate button you can use to express your gratitude to Jack in a language artists everywhere understand, but rarely hear.
