TED Jazz Pi­ano

That's China - - Events -

Jazz pi­ano is a col­lec­tive term for the tech­niques pi­anists use when play­ing Jazz and by now it has played a lead­ing role in de­vel­op­ing the sound of Jazz. The pi­ano has been an in­te­gral part of the Jazz id­iom since its in­cep­tion, in both solo and en­sem­ble set­tings. Its role is mul­ti­fac­eted due largely to the in­stru­ment's com­bined melodic and har­monic ca­pa­bil­i­ties. This Jazz Pi­anist TED trio’s show, de­riv­ing from a kind of pi­ano mu­sic called Rag­time—de­vel­oped from African folk mu­sic - fea­tures abun­dant seg­men­ta­tion and im­promptu el­e­ments.
