Hi guys, first it's a really nice Master Class about BEvans! Brilliant and better saying with a big awe! I am kind a beginner, though. Not so much in my head, but with my hands! Maybe someone could help me with finger tips for JazzHanon. I have just started with the Lesson 1 of the JoiOfImprov1? Or suggest anything about that topic which could help me in the process? Thanks in advance. Sincerely K


Sincerely, K

Hi Dave, (I hear, again, the voice of HAL!! wink hahaha)

wow... The Dave Frank?!?!! Nice to meet You here in person!!!! And appreciate very much Your support!
What I want by this maybe is not the topic of this post,
but You could also correct me in this and suggest me some other way.

What I asked is what kind of fingerings I should use with JazzHanon Lesson 1 in Bb!

I couldn't find any suggestion in the Book or added CD. So I asked You... but in
the meantime, I had to start with Lesson, and found some own suggestions.

i.e.

JazzHanon L1 in Bb

LH
Ascending Descending
54321345 12345431
43212345 21345432
43212345 12345432
43212345 12345431
43121345 21345432
43212345 12345432
43212345 12345432
43121345 12345---

RH
12345312 54321235
(21345312) (54312135)
12345312 43121235
12345321 43212135
21345312 43212135
12345312 43212135
12345312 43121235
12345321 43212135
21345321 43212---
(21345312)

I was taught that the fingering is very important for a skill,
but of course, I found many times unnecessary complications with it.
As I watched many of Yours performing, fortunately, but unfortunately still only over YouTube,
I noticed You care much less then my ex classical teachers about it,
and that it cannot stop You in any skill or speed. So I ask for an advice.
Maybe You suggest us to practice this JazzHanon
with all time the same fingering LH 54321345... RH 12345321...
but then it's hard to line smoothly between figures, especially connecting upper and lower tones,
if You understand what I mean. *sorry about my poor, bad, not-natural-speaker-English!

Well, this is it for now, thanks.


Sincerely, K

We want to go with the 12345321 12345321 all the way up and 54321345 54321345 all the way down for jazzhanon 1. It's ok if there's a slight jump in between starting points. Part of the reason for doing it this way is to break the classical "rule" that you shouldn't use your thumb on the back keys..in jazz we can put our fingers up our noses if we want hehe.

Among jazz pianists, in touch, he was one of the greats . . . however I would place Art Tatum higher in that regard, I wouldn't go as far as you do!
