From a guitarist's perspective, Smooth Jazz is more like instrumental rhythm and blues, funk and pop music! It is a vibrant playground of great grooves, sophisticated blues-based harmonies, and lush orchestration - in the tradition of James Brown, Tower of Power, Earth, Wind and Fire and Carlos Santana. It is where jazz, rock, pop, funk, r&b, and Latin styles all come together on the guitar.This DVD will help you to master this style, extending your knowledge of jazz harmony, blues techniques, funk rhythm skills and a keen, lyrical sense of melody in a variety of tone and amp settings. Richard Smith is a session player and recording artist who lives in Los Angeles, California. He is also a Senior Professor and Chair of the Studio/Jazz Guitar department at the University of Southern California.
