Episode 12, Learning Jazz…with Sean Hully

An illustration of how some people learn and learn about jazz.  We hear the perspective of Peterborough jazz saxophonist, Sean Hully.  Sean tracks the development of jazz, from King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Coleman Hawkins and Charlie Parker.   He then moves on to how the playing of Wayne Shorter, Hank Mobley, and Joe Henderson inspired Sean.  He gives us an inside look at his own improvisation process.  We also hear about finding that balance between accessibility and creativity.  Then there is the difference between thinking ‘vertically’ and thinking ‘horizontally’: do you know it?  And, of course, lots of interesting music.
