Listening to... le Jazz

“You think you know how to listen to jazz, as you know certain terms such as a chorus, a ballad, a riff, scat, etc. However, anyone can applaud at the wrong time in mid-concert, or fail to recognize the part of the main phrase in the bridge of the 16th bar! For newbies and connoisseurs alike, Professor Jacques Morgantini enables the former to learn and the latter to consolidate the culture necessary to love jazz even more.  An exemplary selection is analyzed in a 24-page booklet so you can really listen to jazz.”
Patrick Frémeaux (from the booklet)
