This Jazz Piano Tutorial is on how to play Jazz Blues using rootless voicings.
Jazz Blues, as the name implies, is a combination of Jazz and Blues. From the Blues it takes the use of primarily dominant chords, the Blues scales, and the 12 Bar Blues chord progression. And from Jazz it takes more sophisticated rhythms, harmonies, chord voicings, and techniques. In this way we create a mix of the raw and emotive power of the Blues with the intellectual and sophisticated elements of Jazz.
There are numerous ways to play in a Jazz Blues style, and one such way is using rootless voicings and a walking bassline.
