Team Player: Artistry in the Ensemble is an online course by the acclaimed bassist and educator, John Goldsby.
This course comprises lessons, performances, play-along tracks and transcriptions designed to be the ultimate resource for playing in jazz ensembles. It’s all here, from intimate duos to hard-swinging trios, from the classic saxophone quartet to a modern sextet with horns. If you’re a jazz bassist looking to play bass lines and solos that your bandmates will love, this course is perfect for you.
John says, “In this course, I demonstrate and teach various ensemble styles: duo, (piano and bass, guitar and bass, drums and bass ), trio with piano and drums, trio with sax and drums, quartet with saxophone, and sextet with three horns.
“This is a five+hour master class to help you learn all aspects of the jazz bass tradition. We cover standard repertoire, plus ensemble, lines and solo lines from some of the greatest jazz bass players: Jimmie Blanton, Slam Stewart, Oscar, Pettiford, Ray Brown, Sam Jones, Paul Chambers, Scott LaFaro, and much more. Enjoy and keep swinging!”
