Pianist magazine?


Dave Horne

Recommended Posts

I saw an ad in the last issue of Keyboard for that magazine and decided to try a subscription. Does anyone here also subscribe to that magazine?

 

There really aren't all that many magazines for keyboard players and I thought it might be interesting. If it doesn't work out, I can cancel it and get my money back for unsent issues.

No guitarists were harmed during the making of this message.

 

In general, harmonic complexity is inversely proportional to the ratio between chording and non-chording instruments.

Marino, did you read the thread on page 2 regarding your contribution to a Keyboard magazine feature on a literacy thread here? Check out the thread on page 2 starting with 'Stephen Fortner ....'.

"The Piano Stylist" was a great subscription that came by mail every couple of months during the 80's and 90's. (no ads in it!) It contained jazz piano lessons and transcriptions of players like Earl Father Hines, Fats Waller, Jess Stacy, Kenny Barron, Cedar Walton and Ramsey Lewis, etc. It had great contributing authors like Mark Levine, Andy Laverne, Don Hass, Dick Hyman, etc. I'm glad I still have all my back issues. There is so much in them that I have not gotten around to studying.

Levine had a lesson on reharmonizing on the fly that he left out of his books. It's the hippest technique for reharmonizing any tune in real time that I have ever tried.

Harry Likas was the Technical Editor of Mark Levine's "The Jazz Theory Book" and also helped develop "The Jazz Piano Book." 

Harry teaches jazz piano online using Facebook Messenger, FaceTime, or Google Meet.

For classical, a great one (in french) is "Le monde de la Musique". At least once a year, they compare thirty great uprights, mostly European pianos but also Yamahas and Steinways, in three different price ranges. Also incredible interviews with legends like Ligeti, Deller, Midori, etc. Many critics with a lot of details about interprets on new classical CDs and so on.
