Modal Jazz Composition and Harmony, Volumes 1 and 2 by Ron Miller

By Ron Miller

The objective of those books is to teach the coed the capability to strengthen latent inventive skills by means of providing the unfettered setting of the chromatic-modal approach and unfastened uneven shape. the liberty of the technique will let the composer to precise him/herself in any type: publish 50s jazz, ECM, fusion, pop, classical, etc., that isn't tied to any harmonic details. Ron Miller is professor of jazz experiences on the collage of Miami. His compositions were recorded and/or played through outstanding musicians as pink Rodney, "Elements", Jerry Coker, Ira Sullivan and Stan Getz. Composition scholars of Ron Miller that experience attained notoriety contain: Pat Metheny, Steve Morse, "T" Lavitz, Bruce Hornsby, Gil Goldstein, Mark Egan, Matt Harris, Denis DiBlasio and Rick Margitza.*********The aim of quantity 2 of "Modal Jazz Composition & concord" is to proceed the dissemination of data that offers a course of research for the aspiring jazz composer. the place quantity 1 of the booklet emphasised the training of a modal harmonic origin, this quantity will introduce suggestions of melody writing and a learn of the types of jazz compositions which are an intrinsic addition to the modern jazz composer's repertoire. additionally incorporated are chapters on harmonization and reharmonization options - as a number of the techniques awarded replicate a power of Gil Evans, Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus in addition to these of Herbie Hancock - and on pentatonic tunes which are harmonized with a modal harmonic starting place. As with quantity 1, an appendix with extra peripheral details is incorporated for the scholar wanting theoretical rationalization and extra examples.

Specializing v to q, we have made k into an A-algebra. l) - K ? ,n. Proof: [Lul, Lu2]. Let now U denote the enveloping algebra over Q for the semisimple Lie algebra corresponding to (aij). Denote the standard generators of 0 by /~i,/~i, i - 1 , . . , n , and set /ti - [/~i,/~i]. r), i - 1 , . . , n, where E~) - E~/r! and similarly for/~/(~);see [Hul, Section 26]. 4 There is a Hopf algebra isomorphism (]z--%Uz/({Ki- 1 1 i - 1 , . . , n}) given by /~r) H image of E~r), /~(~) ~ /ti ~ image of F (~), image of [K/l; 0 ] .

In other words, any G~T-module that is induced from a finite dimensional B~T-module has a Zr-filtration. Moreover, [ 2 r V - 2~(#)] - dim V,. H. H. 5 Let A e X(T). Then Q~(A) has a Z~-filtration, and for each # E X(T) we have [Q~(~). 2~(~)1- [2~(~). L~(~)] (the latter symbol denoting composition factor multiplicity). " Note that IndTG~T -- 2r o Ind B~T. 4. , B' = woBwo, where w0 is (a representative in G of) the longest element in W. Set 2 ' - I n d ~ T T. Then, clearly, Z~ has properties completely analogous to Z~.

3) It turns out that the representation theory for Gr is quite similar to the one for G. W i t h o u t worrying too much about details and proofs (the reader is referred to [Ja] for these), we now give some of the highlights. 4 33 For any B~-module E, we set Z~(E) - IndCB~E. 4) Zr is an exact functor. The reason is that G~/B~ is affine, namely G~/B~ ~_ U¢, so that all higher sheaf cohomology of bundles on G~/Br vavishes. 5) dim Z~ (E) = pNr dim E, because dim k[U¢] = pN~ (cf. 6(iii)). 5 Let A E X(T).
