For example, the song at times changes from a quiet saxophone soli, to a loud shout chorus, to a uniquely created improvised solo. The second track on this album—“Love Theme from Hair”—is my favorite on the CD. I like this song because it is a soft ballad that is simplistically happy. Mike Vax delves into this tune and explores range, melody and emotion as the featured soloist. This song is not a standard or an original, but it holds a special place in my jazz repertoire.
I did finally narrow the search down to two songs; both are cover songs, “Have a Little Faith”, and “Hallelujah”. The song “Have a Little Faith” is a beautiful song to begin with, but to listen to just the instrumental version with Frisell on Guitar is amazing. And while I could listen to it all day I had to go with the remake of my favorite song ever, “Hallelujah”. This version is
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. This singing was significant at Rick’s Café Américain because it was louder than the Germans, who were singing Die Wacht am Rhein, which was considered a patriotic anthem during Nazi Germany. Undoubtedly music represents much more than a sound. The song As Time Goes By witnessed the love between Rick and Ilsa. For them this song always brings fond memories and we can see it, when Ilsa is sitting adjacent to Sam’s piano quietly enjoying this song.
I intend to argue that for a jazz player to be a holistic musician, a master of styles, they must immerse themselves in both the traditions of the classical composers and the jazz performers, for in actuality, they are one and the same. In the modern school music program, that is middle school through high school, it is generally assumed that players learn a degree of classical technique before attempting to play jazz.  This is necessary for introducing a number of musical prerequisites such as tone production, note reading, proper/alternate fingerings, musical terms, and basic technical proficiency.  However, this need not be the end of the jazz player's classical studies. In fact, in the case of many successful jazz players, it is just the beginning.
“Coltrane Changes/Cycles” is the second technique used by John Coltrane. It is basically a harmonic movement in major thirds, using the note root of a chord over the usual jazz chord progressions. One of his songs called “Giant Steps” is a perfect example for the technique. John Coltrane also learned a technique called “multiphonics” from an American jazz pianist, Thelonious Monk. The technique involves a player producing several tones simultaneously by using a calm embouchure, diverse pressure, and distinct fingerings.
Indeed, that was the case with my Father, whose famous line after seeing them on the Ed Sullivan Variety Show was, “They will never last”. Of course, I had to laugh a few years later when I heard my Dad humming the song “Michelle” by The Beatles. Needless to say, both have survived the passage of time, and their music has endured. Though there are many differences in the creative lives of The Beatles and Mozart, when compared, even the most ardent music fan would be surprised to learn of the similarities that they also share. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was one of the most innovative musical composers and performers of his time.
Pink Floyd, who started in England in 1965 under the original name of “Tea Set”, has never really been a dominating force in the musical world. This goes to show how great that Pink Floyd really is, because they have achieved so much success while only gaining minimal face time. They had only one number one Billboard hit in the U.S., but constructed a whole list of works that stick in many people’s minds as great in their own right. Pink Floyd has always been original and has always differentiated themselves in the minds of devoted fans and critics alike. Pink Floyd is considered to be “Classic Rock,” but many people of their time-period saw them as the blues, jazz and sometimes even punk rock.
But as great artists like Freddie Mercury demonstrate, a rock song can be as complex as a Mozart symphony . People appreciate the musical works of composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert and many others .According to them, classical music has many benefits. Some of these benefits include brain development, building social and emotional skills, and stimulating creativity and enhancing joy .Classical music is just so wonderful because it brings together so many different kinds of instruments in a beautiful harmony On the other way to some people, classical music just seems so repetitive and gets tiring to them very fast.. I like Mozart, but play it for somebody you meet casually, and the likely response will be, 'it's too long'. Play some Mozart, and they'll think it sounds boring.
It began as the backing for doo-wop and was then picked up by early rock-and-roll groups which brought the progression to center-stage. (AllMusic) Rock music featuring the 50’s Progression was the popular music up through the 1990’s, and while rock has faded in the past 10 years, the chord progression has maintained its utility. Many frustrated musicians wonder how one chord progression can remain dominant through six decades. According to music psychology experts, the progression is simple and easy for the brain to process. (Reif) For example, the C major 50’s Progression consists of C major, A minor, F major, and G major.
Paul had an extraordinary mind, and specifically enjoyed the art of music. Eventually this love turned into a curiosity of self, and he found success and liberation with a local group now known as “The Beatles”. In the 1970 song, “Let It Be”, Paul McCartney alludes to a significant dream utilizing various rhetorical strategies. McCartney is attempting to express his acceptance of his mother’s death and provide comfort to those who
