Ballads: Use these kind of tunes for your harmonic workouts. Mid Tempo: Use these to develop your swing and get your feel. Uptempo: Use these to polish up your chops
...but then take what you get out of each tempo and carry it over to the others.
Eddie Landsberg, MA, Ed.M, B.Mus
An internationally respected music theorist and performer, Eddie was born and raised in Philadelphia and began classical piano training at the age of 5, starting Jazz Studies at Philadelphia's famous Settlement Music School in his teens. Switching to Hammond Organ in his mid 20's, he received his first organ lesson from the legendary Shirley Scott then studied Jazz composition and performance with Blue Note Recording artist Big John Patton. He also received guidance from Austin Mitchell (a favorite accompanist of Ella Fitzgerald) and began performing alongside Byard Lancaster and other "old school" Philly and East Coast Jazz and R&B legends. After recording several CDs which received national air play ( NPR, WBGO and hundreds of radio stations across in the U.S), Eddie became one of the original factory demonstrators for the original Nord Electro, touring Europe to promote their product. Shortly after, he moved to Japan where he spent almost 20 years teaching, leading bandstands and running his own venue which was featured on NHK and in magazines throughout the country. While there, he also did vocal and performance coaching for Victor Records, and was involved in promotions for Yamaha Motorcycles and the Mori Building (celebrating the opening of the famous Roppongi Hills Complex.) Eddie currently resides in Astoria, Queens and is creator of the "7 Secrets of Jazz and Soul" Jazz improv series.
