On invitation of the European Guitar Teachers Association EGTA – The Netherlands, two articles were recently published in the EGTA magazine El Maestro EM 67(2018)/68(2019) on ‘Jazz on the Classical Guitar’.
To accompany these articles, some video examples are made in which we hear the nylon string guitar in duo pieces with double bass and trio setting with drums.
In addition to these 2 articles, and in addition to many existing solo nylon string jazz performances/recordings, these video examples were extended with duo-bass and trio setting.
In these video’s we hear loose finger style arrangements wherein space for improvisation in the Kern tune ‘I’m Old fashioned’. Further more a Ralph Towner composition titled ‘Tramonto’ and another ASB standard: ‘Don’t Go To Strangers’ in Trio setting.
