We've brought you "Chops", "Shedding" and "Noodling" and now we bring you the experts view as to what are, "Changes".
This fantastic serious of videos on Jazz Lingo has been put together by our friends at Serious, the organisers of the EFG London Jazz Festival. They have created a unique series of videos that help to de-mystify jazz lingo and this is the fourth and final part of the series. All musical genres and styles have their own language, the kind of words that you need to know if you're to be taken seriously by fellow lovers of a particular style. But jazz seems to have a wider variety of words, its own special language that are unique to the genre. Many derive from the era when jazz was cool, not that we think it still isn't, it was just uber-cool back in the day.
