In this information-packed DVD, bassist Ed Friedland reveals the technical and stylistic details behind professional jazz upright performance.

Through live band demonstrations and detailed, step-by-step analysis, Ed shows you how to: develop stylistic left and right-hand techniques for maximum tone and sustain; arrange scale and arpeggio patterns for greater range and efficiency whether walking or soloing; deal with typical live performance challenges – performance protocol, stock intros, endings, trading fours and more; play classic stylistic variations including Latin jazz, up-tempo tunes, the two-feel, ballads, 3/4 time and more.

Ed's practical, direct teaching style offers easy-to-understand explanations and methodical demonstrations of each topic. The accompanying booklet includes notated versions of each example for added clarity.
