This has been made possible thanks to good music, excellent actors and an unpredictable story. While watching the movie Casablanca, I really enjoyed the different types of music. The music was nice because it shows all kinds of languages and sounds. For example, in one of the flashback scenes in Paris, Rick and Ilsa dance to Rhythm of Perfidia by the Mexican composer Alberto Domínguez. Also another scene from the movie, which was characterized by music and that definitely impressed me, was when Laszlo begins singing followed by many people, La Marsellesa, the French national anthem, even before the occupation of the country.
One of Jazz's greatest weapons for success is improvization. Improvization is the act of composing and playing at the same time (such as freestlying). This technique gave the soloist the chance to portray his/her inner emotion with chosen instrument, As microscoptic as the ideal sounds thr affect on listeners was tremendious. Listeners were now able to relate to the muscians that they admired. Improvization was so original that the musicains that mastered the technique were classafied as there own genre.
I enjoyed listening to them and not being startled every 30 seconds by the drums pounding in or the horns suddenly sounding out of no where. In this sense, I very much enjoyed listening to this orchestra in a different way then I enjoyed the other musical performances we went to see. When Joshua Bell came out to do his solo, it was actually very funny because he completely changed the mood of the night by playing “Yankee Doodle” on his violin. The whole mood
Your range and flexibility is also an aspect that is important while improvising, as a large range is often desired. A great example of a musician who has large range and flexibility during improvisations and scats would be Ella Fitzgerald, and I've found especially in her rendition of “How High The Moon”. You can hear within the first 45 seconds that she has exceeded an octave easily through her phrasing. Another thing that is different with jazz singers is their posture. Most vocalists appear cool, unattached and dispassionate with what they're doing, a method I believe is to really focus in on the song and connect with it.
It was beautiful melodies, the brisk pace of hearty, full of a kind of vitality and vigor up. I could feel the cheerful and joyful of the celebrations. I did enjoy the melody of this song, and I could tell that the when the band played it at the second time, it was different that the first time. At the second time, they ended the piece with a cymbal crash and bass tube horns to make
Jazz Alley You have not witnessed jazz until you have witnessed Jazz Alley. Jazz alley is my favorite jazz performance I have ever attended. My grandfather is in a jazz band and I really go for him, not for the music. In the case of Jazz Alley I truly enjoyed, and the atmosphere at Jazz, a Louisiana Kitchen. The musician that caught my eye was the saxophonist.
Later, the strings came in as an accompanying section along with the guitar playing chords. After the English horn finished the melodic solo, Mr. Williams played the melodic line, which is almost identical to that of the English horn. Mr. Williams’s solo was very melancholic, yet uplifting. Both the soloist and the orchestra were very sensitive to harmonic changes and drama during the movement. The cadenza was very impressive musically and technically.
Jazz Band II 18 October 2013 Mike Vax: BigBandJazz.net Mike Vax is an outstanding trumpeter who specializes in Jazz studies. On his album “BigBandJazz.net” he plays in a Ferguson-esque manor, not in terms of range, but style—playing over the band as the featured soloist. The first track on this album is “Royal Rendezous”, a Mike Vax original, which is a nice and mellow swing chart featuring tenor Scott Peterson and trumpeter Mike Olmos on the solos. I really enjoy this song because it contrasts in balance and dynamics. For example, the song at times changes from a quiet saxophone soli, to a loud shout chorus, to a uniquely created improvised solo.
Finally he realizes that this sound is the famous art of jazz music that he learned about in 6th grade orchestra class. He liked this unique style of music, it ran through his body and made him want to dance proudly and yell with an extreme amount of excitement. But his reaction to this
My favorite artist in the film was Michel Petrucciani. He is not only a great talented pianist but an inspiration as well. Michel Petrucciani was born with osteogenesis imperfecta which is a genetic disease that causes brittle bones and short stature. He still became one of the most accomplished jazz pianists of his generation, despite having arms which caused him pain. I believe that he teaches us that anything is possible with hard work and dedication no matter how hard things may seem.
