THE GROOVE: Playing Funk and R&B

Sunday, February 7, 2021, 3PM EST 

We’ll talk about the importance of maintaining a sense of melody no matter how rhythmically fragmented the context, and ways to do that, with examples from my catalogue like “Snakes,” “Chicago Song” and “Run for Cover.”  Along with those tunes, I will talk about the influence of other artists, especially James Brown.

Each class will be approximatively 2 hours long, led over Zoom with limited capacity. The first half will be me speaking and demonstrating. The second half, a Q&A.
