Grooveyard Records asked me to work on a cover of Jimi Hendrix and as they heard the "kinf of" purple haze version I did for Anasounds they wanted me to develop it.
In this short session I demonstrate some extended arpeggio concepts used by Miles Davis and John Coltrane for improvisation in Modal Jazz tunes like "So What" and "Impressions". These ideas used by these great masters can give our modal playing melodic direction and harmonic shape over a static chord background. I have also stressed technical development by looking at specific arpeggio and melodic shapes for guitarists that can extend the technical vocabulary of what you already know into new creative directions perhaps making Coltrane's "Sheets of Sound" approach more available to us Guitarists.
I studied ten years with the great Jazz Teacher/Composer Dennis Sandole who taught John Coltrane, James Moody, Jim Hall, Pat Martino, and many others and I have played and recorded with musicians as Bassists Michael Manring and Percy Jones, Producers Neil Kernon and David Torn. Keyboardist Jordan Rudess from Dream Theater played on two tunes of my 2001 disc "Addition By Subtraction" as well.
