JTC Jam Of The Month October 2015 - Richard Daudé
Guitar Virtuoso John Jorgenson to Release Limited Edition, 3-CD Box Set Divertuoso
Los Angeles - Much to the excitement of guitar players and musicians worldwide, John Jorgenson will release Divertuoso, a limited edition, 3-CD box set of three separate, all-new full-length albums featuring three of Jorgenson’s band configurations (gypsy jazz, bluegrass and electric) via Cleopatra Records on October 16, 2015.
Jorgenson's career has been wide-ranging, including playing lead guitar in Elton John's band for seven years; being a co-founder of both the groundbreaking The Hellecasters and The Desert Rose Band; being widely known as the U.S. Ambassador of Gypsy Jazz; and portraying Django Reinhardt in the Hollywood feature film Head In The Clouds. Jorgenson has recorded or toured with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, The Byrds, Johnny Cash, Bob Seger, Willie Nelson and many others. Jorgenson is a GRAMMY Award-winner and has won many other awards, including being three-time Academy of Country Music (ACM) Guitarist of the Year.
Totaling 40 tracks in all, Divertuoso showcases Jorgenson's incredible virtuosity as both a musician and songwriter in a variety of styles. Considered a master of the electric and acoustic guitar, and many other instruments, Jorgenson plays 12 instruments on the box set (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, clarinet, mandocello, soprano sax, bass, hammond organ, bassoon, keyboards, percussion), as well as vocals, and he composed a majority of the material. This release is a singular accomplishment not only for Jorgenson, but also for the guitar community as a whole. His mastery of these three disparate styles (gypsy jazz, bluegrass and rock) is on full display throughout these recordings.
The three records that are part of Divertuoso are:
John Jorgenson Quintet - Returning
J2B2 (John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band Featuring Herb Pedersen, Jon Randall & Mark Fain) - From The Crow's Nest
John Jorgenson - Gifts From The Flood
“I feel like a huge overview of my musical life is contained in this project,” Jorgenson said. “It incorporates many of the diverse styles that all co-exist in my world. Had I thought very long beforehand, I could have easily gotten overwhelmed at the amount of actual work it would take to create such a large body of work, but it really came together pretty naturally. I'm both relieved and proud to have Divertuoso out in the world.”
Returning is the latest recording by gypsy jazz veterans the John Jorgenson Quintet. Their music, both live and recorded, is a time-and-space transcending experience. All but two of the album's 13 tracks were written by Jorgenson himself. Jorgenson plays acoustic guitar, bouzouki, clarinet, mandolin, mandocello, and soprano sax on the record, and sings on one song. The New York Times has been quoted as saying: “Jorgenson is perhaps the best jazz guitarist alive.”
The 15-track From The Crow's Nest by bluegrass supergroup J2B2 (John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band featuring Herb Pedersen, Jon Randall & Mark Fain) was recorded at Sheryl Crow's home barn studio in Nashville over the course of three days. Pedersen (The Dillards and Old And In The Way) is a legendary vocal arranger and musician who also co-founded The Desert Rose Band with Jorgenson. Hit songwriter Randall, a former member of Emmylou Harris' Nash Ramblers, has toured with Earl Scruggs and Sam Bush. Fain is the long-time bassist for Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. The record includes lead and harmony vocals by Jorgenson, Randall and Pedersen, and when the three sing together, a magical 60's/70's folk air transforms the typical bluegrass “high lonesome harmonies” into an entirely different dimension. In addition to his vocal work, Jorgenson plays mandolin and acoustic guitar. Songwriters contributing to the record include Jorgenson, Pedersen, Randall (co-writer of the CMA Song of the Year, “Whiskey Lullaby,” with Bill Anderson, included in this set), Rodney Crowell, Guy Clark, JD Souther, Mitchell Jayne and Rodney Dillard (members of The Dillards) and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Member Chris Hillman (The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers).
The third album, Gifts From The Flood, is a John Jorgenson solo electric record. Jorgenson plays everything on it (guitars, bass, Hammond organ, clarinet, bassoon, keyboards, and percussion) with the exception of drums, which are played by Greg Morrow. The concept is an interesting one; Jorgenson had many guitars and amps completely ruined in the Nashville flood of 2010. As the guitars were restored and each one came back to him, new songs seemed to flow out of each one. The gratitude Jorgenson had just for having them back is captured on this record. Each song was named simply after the guitar that was used to create it, and all of the songs were written by Jorgenson alone. With everything from straight-ahead rock, to country-flavored picking (including a special guest appearance by Brad Paisley on one track), to cool surf-flavored grooves, Gifts From The Flood is anything but standard.
Here's what others have said about John Jorgenson:
“John Jorgenson is one of my most favorite players. He is incredibly versatile and his solos are unique and melodic, played with amazing technique. 'My' guitarist's guitarist.” - PETER FRAMPTON
“If there was one guitar player I'd like to be, it would be John Jorgenson.” - BRAD PAISLEY
“John Jorgenson is a true artiste. He's a phenomenal musician.” - CHRIS HILLMAN
“This is a display of virtuosity rarely rendered.” - FRETBOARD JOURNAL
“John Jorgenson is one of the most respected guitarists in the world…” - LOS ANGELES TIMES
“John Jorgenson has a rare kind of genius for an instrumentalist in that he's equally comfortable and capable of playing Buck Owens, Beatles riffs, or jazz leads…” - NO DEPRESSION

The Uros Spasojevic Project represents the product of the long-lasting idea of the bassist Uros Spasojevic to find and bring forth his inner musical voice through original compositions. The basic idea of this project is a different concept of understanding a bass guitar, which presents an unconventional role, in a different light, for the instrument, as the leading melodic and solo voice with the elements of polyphonic playing and improvisational logic as the most characteristic feature.
This provides an interesting and diverse sound, with the unconventional approach of playing and performing, but at the same time the emphasis is on the melody (and musicality in general) as its most important feature. The compositions are composed and arranged for a trio with the aim to direct the attention to basic music elements, melody and harmony, so that the creativity of all performers could be fully expressed.
The first 10 CDs sold will be autographed by Uros himself.

20 Tasty Dominant Licks And Phrases
Finishing off his three part series, Alex Hutchings turns his attention to the dominant chord with these 20 highly accessible licks that can be used as a springboard for your own dominant improvisation ideas!
Alex made a deliberate and conscious effort to create 20 tasty licks that even beginner/intermediate players could pick up and implement into their jams right away - but in true style he's thrown in one or two tough ones to keep even the most advanced players interested and learning! The bulk of these licks were kept simple to allow you to learn and develop the thoughts and ideas behind them, rather than concentrating on learning a tough tongue twister of a lick as well!
The Dominant chord is an absolutely essential tool in musicians toolkit. It's all over western music everywhere you look; from Pop tunes, to Rock tracks, to the ii-V's of Jazz and all the way to the I-IV-V's of Blues (often all dominant chords). Fusion players LOVE them for their ability to allow them to sneak in those extended and outside licks to create great melodic tension and release. It's a fundamental part of all music and it's one that will serve you VERY well if you take the time to get it under your belt.
Alex designed these tasty dominant licks over 5 different styles/groups (A7b5, Latin, Rock, West Coast and ii-V) in order to give you a vast array of contexts to use the licks. Of course we have included the jamtracks for each style so you have plenty of scope for jamming them out! They are all focussed around A to allow for many different variations of the A7 chord. Alex specifically uses A7, Asus, A altered and A13b9/Bb diminished.
Choosing the DELUXE option is where the package really comes alive! In the 20 Deluxe video lessons Alex goes into great detail about how to play each lick and the thought behind each and every one of them. We've even included an extra bonus lick (plus Deluxe breakdown and TAB) for Deluxe owners too!
So if you're looking to really master the Dominant chord, or you're just looking to learn some very tasty licks from Alex (perhaps the simpler ability level is more your thing here) then this is definitely the package you need!
As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master as well as backing tracks for you to practise every lick to, and jam out your own solos! We've even included some text notes to help you really get these parts down!
Download right now, or Premium Members hit the +MyTracks button and get instant streaming access!
Be sure to check out the previous two packages in the series below (20 Major, and 20 Minor licks). Both come with full Deluxe options which include the video lessons by Alex as well!
