Voiced leading in jazz through Bach and Fred Hersch
« on: September 18, 2013, 09:09:34 AM »
There are many ways to think about chords in jazz. Most of the published ones show voicings as "things." Things like shells, A and B, inversions, etc.

But there's another way to chords through Bach and voice leading and counterpoint. I've posted an introduction on my blog:

- with examples from Bach and a link to a Fred Hersch masterclass in Downbeat where he talks about Bach chorales and voice leading.
