“Rud …is nothing less than a revelation. The Edmonton native, who lived in Montreal and studied with the great Jim Hall in New York, delivers fleet guitar lines that demonstrate his world-class talents.” Chris Wong – The Vancouver Courier
Mike will talk about one of the things that makes jazz unique among musical styles: improvising using a pre-set vocabulary. How do our favorite artists seemingly make grooving melodies up, right off the top of their heads? There’s a fascinating solution to this problem, that is rarely discussed. Don’t miss this under-the-hood perspective, at the engine of jazz improv. It’s a beautiful and inspiring process that will help you play more solidly, and with more inspiration.
Also, Mike will answer your questions on any guitar or jazz topic!
