Scott Jones: incredible improvisations over Krantz and Willis loops

Just working out some ideas over a looped backing track (for personal practice purposes and NOT for sale). Unedited footage archiving linear concepts. To find new ideas and reinforce existing ones, I often do "stream-of-consciousness", extended lines with little or no phrasing. Though at times, rhythmic groupings and choices of subdivisions are explored. The harmonic framework is Cm (Dorian), from which I extend, and stretch, and over which I superimpose tension through a balance of resolution within the inside framework, and altered, tense, outside concepts, based on a chromatic approach and manipulation of 1/2 step movement of simpler, inside structures like intervals and triads, diatonic modes and melodic minor modes, harmonic minor modes; and symmetrical scale structures like half-whole and whole-half diminished, and whole tone. Within those and other scale structures, half step movement is introduced between the whole step blocks that occur throughout. Half step movement is also used with triads and dyads in ascending and descending fashion, often between "like" shapes that occur within the chosen harmonic framework. Chord tones are often encircled above and below prior to resolution and can be linked by doing so to a series of chord tones. Not perfect, but an archive. ALL improvised. I tried to keep my ugly mug out of frame, but I apologize for the brief moments of my face in frame that you might encounter.

MoonJune To Release New Studio Album By Indonesian Guitar Master TOHPATI Featuring JIMMY HASLIP and CHAD WACKERMAN

NYC - With Tohpati’s 3rd release (2nd as a trio) on MoonJune, recorded in Los Angeles in September 2013, we see the Beckian progressive metal riffing of 2012’s Tohpati Bertiga 'Riot' supplanted by a pairing of compositional dexterity along with the unique guitar voice that is the essence of Tohpati, one of Indonesia's most famous guitar players. Though there is no shortage of acrobatic axe-wielding on 'Tribal Dance', Tohpati’s democratic interplay with the formidable world class rhythm section of Jimmy Haslip and Chad Wackerman is the real star here – creating a powerful synergy that gives voice to the whole of the music over its parts and delivering a richly rewarding listening experience. Power chords, distorted spare note leads, chugging rhythmic grooves and nuanced jazz phrasings are all summoned up by Tohpati, as he locks in with Haslip’s dubmaster basslines and the rubber-limbed kitwork of Wackerman, creating tracks of infectious syncopation and of sufficient complexity to warrant a player recount. Aside from a few ambient vocal samples, 'Tribal Dance' is an instrumental album, though many of Tohpati’s melodic guitar lead lines feel “sung” in both song context and in the expressive way in which they are played. This diversity of guitar voicings and textures, along with the enthusiasm and chemistry between the players, will keep this disc in heavy rotation. Fans of Jeff Beck, Wayne Krantz, Allan Holdsworth, Scott Henderson, Oz Noy, and, of course, the Indonesian guitar icon Dewa Budjana, will surely want to pick this up.

“Tohpati's playing is extraordinarily fluent, effortlessly expressive and multi-textured.” - London Jazz News (UK)

“Indonesian guitarist Tohpati Bertiga spews lightning strikes across the studio, enamored by his slick-picking breakouts and shrewd use of space. He's a seasoned vet, noted by his prominent session duties and affiliation with the ultra-progressive jazz-rock band simakDialog, and his own Tohpati Bertiga power trio and Tohpati Ethnomission.” - All About Jazz (USA)

“One of the world's greatest and most versatile guitarists of the XXI Century.” - Leonardo Pavkovic, MoonJune

“Tohpati appears as a fantastically skilled guitarist here, displaying a wide range of techniques and styles, embracing Prog-Metal, Hard Rock, Space Fusion, blues, jazz and psychedelic, often delivered in a ‘guitar hero’ manner.” – Progressor (Russia/Uzbekistan)

“Tohpati has matured into a singular voice on his instrument as well as a composer of uncommon breadth and skill.” - Grande Rock (Greece)

“Tohpati plays a mean lead guitar, lightning fast but still with great feel and drama.” - Prog Planet (Denmark)

“Tohpati is at the forefront of modern magicians of electric guitar.” - WIld Thing Magazine (Greece)

“Tohpati's guitar is breathtaking ... from fluid Jazz passages to experimental sections and mystic moments ... just brilliant.” - ProgArchives (USA)

“Tohpati certainly knows his chops, but his playing shows a depth of feeling as well as heaps of technical ability.” – Astounded By Sound (USA)

“Tohpati is an outstanding guitarist and it's refreshing to hear a guitarist with his own voice - while he's often playing lines that are technically difficult, they never sound much like what we normally hear from a hot guitarist.” - Exposé Magazine (USA)

“Tohpati can be as fluid as Holdsworth when he wishes, playing with the mastery the progressive fusion in it's truest sense.” - Jazz Music Archive (USA)

Hey Guys! Few days ago I post video where I experimented with synthesizers and found some interesting stuff which inspired me to compose this song.


Всем привет! Несколько дней назад я выложил видео, где я экперементировал с синтрезторами и так увлекся что написал это произведение.
