21st Century Jazz Composers

  • Icelandic pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs: Biography

    Icelandic pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs: Biography:

    deltaboogie:

    Equally influenced by such American pianists as Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, and Scandinavians like Bobo Stenson and Jon Balke, Sunna has found a way to make music to which people on both sides of the Atlantic can relate. Her own charming brand of romantic lyricism soaring over a driving American rhythm section appeals to jazzers and non-jazzers alike.

    The Jazz Recital Band rehearsed every Friday at 1:00 in the ASU Bandroom. This was our second recital this term, the first was at the Brookland United Methodist Church and is also on the Live Music Archive. The last day of finals was Wednesday. This recital was Sunday.

    The musicians are all ASU students except for Joseph Curtis who is an ASU graduate now teaching music at Hoxie High School. I asked Joseph to sit in when I found out that our brass players were going to be out of town.

    This is actually a ii7b5 V7b9 i7 in C. So …

    Dm7b5 G7b9 Cm7

    I’m using root voicings on the D and C. For the G7b9 I just drop the top note a half step.

    Encapsulation involves a target tone, usually a chord tone or a ninth. There are no rules but a rule of thumb starting point for encapsulation is approach from above diatonically and then from below chromatically.

    So on the Dm7b5 my target tones are F and Ab, the 3rd and the 5th, both chord tones. I encapsulate the F like this, G E F, and the Ab like this, Bb G Ab.

    Then on the G7b9 my target tones are the B and the D, again the 3rd and the fifth. I encapsulate the B like this, C Bb B, and the D like this, Eb, Db, D.

    Diatonically from above means usually a whole step or a half step above the target tone. Chromatically from below means a half step from below the target tone. The interval from above can be larger but the interval from below is almost always a half step.

    So over the Dm7b5 the encapsulation is whole step above and half step below on both target tones. And on the G7b9 the encapsulation is half step above and half step below on both target tones.

    Another interesting thing about this exercise is that the target tones, F Ab B and D are all a minor third apart and form a fully diminished arpeggio.

    Then on the Cm7 I play a chromatic run skipping only the Db, from Eb to G. The upper half of the C minor scale is entirely chromatic in this run. In minor scales both the 6th and the 7th are ambiguous, depending on the minor scale chosen, so I just play all of them.

    From the G I run the C minor scale down with a final encapsulation around the tonic, D B C.

    This is all much easier to play than to explain. After you run this exercise a few times and then do some more encapsulation you will get it. The approach from the bottom by a half step is very easy to understand and play. Encapsulation exercises are also easy to transpose. If you know the scale and you know the arpeggio then you know the encapsulation.

    This is my third SecCam video. I’ve already finished my 4th piano video and it’s using camcorders. The camcorders give better video quality but kind of lack the charm of the security cameras. It will also be easier to do video shoots of recording sessions with bands using the security cameras. You just turn the system on and it records everything. So sometimes it will be SecCam and sometimes it will be HD with camcorders.

    SecCam Piano Video
    by Hairy Larry

    I got this Zmodo security system from a burnout and it mostly all worked but it didn’t record. I got a brand new replacement system for $40 and mounted the hard drive in it and hooked up all four cameras and everything works except one of the cameras is a little bit purple.

    My idea is to use this for communication between my recording studio and my out of control room which is actually in an outbuilding, the icosahedron. But to test the system and learn more about it I started doing some piano videos.

    This first one is on a simple ii V7 v I7 change, that is, Cm7 F7 Fm7 Bb7. If you look at my left hand you will see I am using rootless Hearle voicings. More on this in a future video. Then I wrote a little right hand part to go with it and did some improv too.

    Still working on the lighting and the camera placement but I think it’s pretty cool, doing a 4 camera shoot with only $40 invested so far.

    Thanks,
    Hairy Larry

    A Lifetime of Carla Bley

    Ethan Iverson’s New Yorker profile of Carla Bley is essential reading. Iverson has brilliantly drawn from Carla’s life and thoughts, and her litany of musical achievements, to fill this beautifully wrapped package that cajols you immediately to take another listen to her recordings. Don’t linger.
