Born and raised in Norway, Jostein Gulbrandsen has lived in New York City since 2001, where he is an active performer leading his own trio and quartet. He has recorded two albums, Twelve and Release of Tension. Through a blend of European, American Jazz and fusion, he has developed a unique style that is both melodic and harmonically rich. In this book he will teach you to play: lines over dominant seventh chords; lines over minor seventh chords; lines over major seventh chords; major ii-V-I lines; minor ii-V-I lines; lines over modern jazz chord progressions; motifs; comping and voice-leading; lines by influential guitarists; and more. You'll also learn to play five jazz standards, including: Invitation • On Green Dolphin Street • Someday My Prince Will Come • Stella by Starlight • St. Thomas. The book includes online access to video demonstrations, for download or streaming, of each example.
