Not just jazz
How to become a better jazz player
If you’d like to get good at playing jazz, you will also need to practice both technique (how to make your instrument work, and how to control is so as to express yourself) AND improvisation (“soloing” and the skills and techniques that jazz improvisers use). Jazz playing is not just “from the heart”, and is not just something that “you just have” or “don’t have”. Good jazz players work at it. It isn’t magic, it is the culmination of practice and experience over time.
