Jazz Counterpoint — Discover New Harmonic Ideas

originally published on:

Jazz Counterpoint! Is there really such a thing? This video is a practical take on what Counterpoint could be in jazz and how you might use it to make more layers in your II V I comping or Chord Melody arrangements.

This lesson is going to cover how I add another melodic layer to some simple II V I ideas. I will also go over how you can use jazz counterpoint as an approach to add fills and movement in a chord melody arrangement. For this I have included the beginning of the song Stella By Starlight harmonized with this approach.
