This series takes you through the building blocks of jazz and will demystify what happens on the bandstand. The goal of the series is to explain the basic elements of jazz performance so as to better enjoy - and deepen - your listening experience. Some of the questions we will explore: How to count (really!). What is a downbeat? What is really going on on stage? What is a rhythm section? What are rhythm changes? When is a solo (improvisation) happening? What is going on during a solo? What is improvised and what is not improvised? We will start at the beginning, as you hear at the start of almost every song at a jazz concert: "1, 2, 1-2-3-4."
