Jazz Manouche or Gypsy Jazz, is a highly-evolved style of music, based on the guitar playing of Django Reinhardt. It requires a solid rhythmic foundation upon which a soloist may build his or her musical statement. The challenge lies in learning how to produce this rhythmic foundation, for Manouche rhythm can be both instantly recognizable to the audience and, frustratingly subtle to the student.
In “Jazz Manouche The Art of Accompaniment”, this rhythmic foundation is disassembled, piece-by-piece, by instructor Denis Chang. With the aid of three students, Denis clearly illustrates how to produce, not just “acceptable” but “authentic” Manouche rhythm. Denis’ teaching methods follow the traditional Manouche approach of oral training. Reliance on theory and printed instruction is minimized as the student is encouraged to learn simply by watching, listening and repeating. Denis has had continued success with this approach with his own students.
