Blues and Roots Ensemble – We’ve had some fantastic resources sent into us by ‘Blues and Roots’, a series of videos to keep players interested in jazz and specifically all things related to the great icon Charles Mingus! The videos talk through the melody of one of Mingus’ tunes, Nostalgia In Times Square, as well as first approaches to soloing and more advanced improvisation concepts. There is also a backing track to go with this. Resources have been shared via YouTube and Instagram
