Lesson 15: how to voice rootless chords
Learn how to voice rootless chords in your left hand
Lesson 15 of my online video course ‘Learn Jazz Piano Online’ is now available. The lesson teaches you how to voice rootless chords in your left hand. This is a more modern approach that Bill Evans used when playing in his trio. It not only leaves more room for the bass player; these voicings will also inspire your right hand to play far more interesting solos.
Here are some rootless voicings in a II-V-I sequence in Bb.
Besides the 30 minute video, I provide you with 4 downloadable backing tracks, sheet music and a quiz. Here’s the link.
