I posted something like this in the strings forum, where it sank without trace ages ago.
Viohazard is studying jazz with his violin teacher, but there is no material available here that is specific to violin or any other bowed string. I'm not sure that his teacher studied much jazz at college (Berklee), but he worked as an assistant to a Japanese jazz musician for a couple of years after he graduated.
What's most popular here is Grappelli-tradition gypsy jazz, so Viohazard's teacher has him listen to CDs, pick out tunes, memorize them, and play them, on the grounds that he first needs to be able to recognize and create a jazz sound.
The books they've found so far are 1001 Jazz Licks, which they analyze and discuss; and a Japanese set of standard jazz songs, with some quite useful notes on each one, discussing the basic scales used etc. BOth are aimed at "any C instrument", and Viohazard's teacher was disappointed not to be able to find anything that really covered the styles most popular in violin.
So, violinists, what jazz do you like to listen to or play, and Violinia, what would you want a violin jazz syllabus/student to cover (not that I'm asking for all your professional secrets, just curious to know what you think should be emphasized for violin!)
