Rufus Reid

The Evolving Bassist (DVD)

On this DVD Rufus is able to bring to life the example and concepts in his best-selling method book. With the help of jazz giants, Lewis Nash on drums and Mulgrew Miller on piano, Rufus demonstrate his techniques and concepts so you can see and hear how these concepts are applied to the real world of jazz performance. In The Evolving Bassist DVD you will learn bass-line construction, technique, and music theory; and most important, you will apply these concepts to playing classic jazz standards such as “Have You Met Miss Jones,” “Embraceable You,” “The Song is You,” and Rufus’ own composition, “It’s the Nights I Like.” Blues changes, rhythm changes, modal music and more will be demonstrated.
