Working on the new blues book

Just a quick update on my work on the new blues book, this is going to be vol 2 of ‘Contemporary Blues Soloing’ and will deal with chords and comping.

Again this is going to start from very simple comping concepts to go towards more complex stuff, not only in terms of chord choice, but also rhythmically.

I might post some preview soon…still early days…

I am thinking ‘Contemporary Blues Chords and Comping’  as a title…again, it might change.

Obviously this is going to be available in English and in Italian.

Il linguaggio blues si è sviluppato negli ultimi decenni da un uso quasi esclusivo della pentatonica ad un linguaggio più articolato, grazie alle influenze fusion e jazz.Mi è stato chiesto troppe volte durante i miei anni di insegnamento come andare al di là delle solite frasi di pentatonica che tutti abbiamo sentito fino alla noia, così ho pensato di raccogliere una vasta gamma di idee per stimolarvi in diverse direzioni, sia armonicamente, che ritmicamente.”

‘Entwined’ (2009)

entwined - gianni chiarelloAn eclectic mix of blues, jazz, rock and funk in a well tested guitar trio setting. Influenced by the contemporary guitar masters like Scott Henderson, Mike Landau, Mike Stern John Scofield, this trio ventures often outside safe musical territory. It is more and more common to find groups whose members, from different parts of the world and backgrounds, come together to create something other than ‘world music’ or ‘fusion’. In this case Italian born-Usa bread guitarist Gianni Chiarello is joined by a British rhythm section to create a powerful blend of music that borrows elements from the American jazz and funk tradition, but also from British classic rock and blues’.
