I've already looked at alot of video lessons of Dave Frank ,and decided to turn to him with а open request: Dave simply must devote one of future lessons to a sense of humor in jazz, jazz improvisation and jazz teaching. I am more than sure that Dave Frank is one of the most appropriate for this pianists . How many very professional jazz video lessons looks like filmed process of dissertation defense ...

Thank you for your kind regards. What was the price we decided upon Nachum, based on the current scheckle to dollar ratio? You know, it's a VERY VERY good idea, thank you Dad, I mean Nachum.

Some of the funniest players that come to mind are Art Tatum, Jonathan and Darlene Edwards, Spike Jones,Pete Barbutti, Charlie Parker, Clark Terry, Harpo and Chico Marx (I do have a class up on them)..who else?

laugh laugh

A typical example from Monk :


- from 1:20

But of course, all this solo charged crazy humor.It's so much different is playing   from playing   of surrounding musicians - even Charlie Rose.

Here are a few considerations about the humor in improvisation. As in the usual humor also in music exist a kind of its rough form - like protruding tongue or slap stick humor. I allowed myself to make a few examples:
http://www.mediafire.com/listen/vzld2b1mru2nbvu/Funny_boogie.mp3

1. The ordinary boogie woogie 1. The ordinary boogie woogie from scratch , starting with shouting "Hey!"
2. The whole phrase is built on shouts , starting with shouting "Hey!"
3. Distortion of individual pitches in melodic line to a greater extent than is required for blue notes. on piano .
4. Using musical blots - clusters , combined with primitive completely not swinging rhythm pattern .( such pattern there is eg. in bars 7-8 of Parker's Au Privave ) .
