This thread is for general jazz discussion.
What are your favorite standards and what are the "definitive" versions of them for you?
What are your favorite cover versions of standards or jazz compositions where the tune is reinvented? Do you think any of them surpass the original?
If I wanted to learn the chords to Soy Califa, would there be a way to find them? Or would I just have to figure it out by ear? Go to 1:21 in the video for the piece.
Basically this, although I prefer pic related.
Also watch some videos of him playing.
Start with the bass note and then the highest note you can hear in the chord. Figure out the rest from there. The more you do it the easier it will become. A slow downer can help when you're starting out and you can just go trial and error and figure out each note of chord

like yeah I get that he's a pretty good player but it seems like all he does is play clever fancy shit. it's cool but i want more than that. like I've never really heard him cut loose and just really for crazy in a more free jazz style.
how much more would I enjoy jazz if I had a little experience trying to play it? right now I play some guitar but I only know the most basics of theory. Like what if I got up to the level where I could solo and comp ok over some songs, would I appreciate jazz much more from that?
I never get a response on this but surely I can't be the only one on /mu/ who loves this record?
this is absolutely incredible and I highly recommend this if you haven't given it a spin. we gotta show this more love on /mu/
I feel that Wayne Shorter is big under appreciated jazz artist. Fucking Soothsayer, Schizophrenia, Et Cetera, and TASE are 4.5/5 albums if not 5/5
