Tom’s Tracks on the Tens: Solfigietto Jam

logo for Tom's Track on the Tens
It’s another installment of Tom’s Tracks on the Tens!

Solfigietto Jam is on the Accessible Depth album, and arose out of a frustrating piano lesson. I had a college piano student [ a music major, but not a piano major] who was “working” on the JC Bach piece Solfigietto – and it was OBVIOUS they were practicing maybe 30 minutes a week, if that.

So I made them struggle through and play the entire piece.

There was a LOT of time to think while they plucked around on the keyboard like a sportswriter hammering out 100 column inches on a local golf tournament using two fingers [True story….].

So I started wondering…. could I make jazz out of this?
