(Jazz Instruction). Primarily a music theory reference, Modalogy presents a unique perspective on the origins, interlocking aspects, and usage of the most common scales and modes in occidental music. Anyone wishing to seriously explore the realms of scales, modes, and their real-world functions will find the most important issues dealt with in meticulous detail within these pages. Logical illustrations accompany in-depth examinations of chordal harmonies, cadential motions, and progressions. This book is perfect for both music students and teachers, as either a course in itself or to augment any theory curriculum.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Modalogy, a deep study of musical symmetry. A worthy must-have book !! 2. April 2014
Von Charles Austin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As a professional jazz pianist, author of a text on jazz harmony, and professor for nearly thirty years, I am always intrigued by new work in this field, and was pleased to encounter Jeff Brent's (with Schell Barkley) Modalogy.

After taking some time studying and working with the contents, I've come to the conclusion that this is a profoundly important text not only for jazz players and teachers, but for all musicians. Modalogy provides layer upon layer upon layer of information and logic that beckons the reader to return time and time again.

As the title suggests, the book contains an in depth analysis of modes, with their sources, characteristics, and modal cadences. Along with diatonic modes, the method for establishing commonly used chromatic modes, is unique, refreshing, brilliant, yet in the end, simply applied.

The authors, have developed a Dorian-centric approach to a radially generated cycle (in contrary motion style), which builds a truly symmetrical inside/ outside take on harmony and dissonance. Through this approach, Brent/Barkely take a fresh and somewhat unconventional approach to the organization of scale types, classifying them using a basic color system portrayed over a cube design. It will give the reader a lot to think about, but it works.

The appendix broadens the scope for application of this material into a large body of detailed related information that the reader will find helpful in practicing.

The topics and concepts are presented plainly and clearly in an approachable and down to-earth manner, with great attention to detail. Although of benefit to serious students beginning a study of jazz harmony and improvisation, the text has much to offer advanced students and teachers. Modalogy offers and expansive study that will inspire and challenge for years to come and I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't pass on this, you MUST have it! 7. November 2013
Von Jared Gardner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is filled with lots of golden nuggets relating to modes, modal chord progressions and beyond. The modal chord progression tables for each mode are worth the price of the book ALONE. It covers so much more than just modes and progressions though. It takes you pretty far!

It may seem a little intimidating at first due to some of the chosen nomenclature, but that really only applies to when a concept or advanced chord and so on are introduced to you (like in the chapter titles). The meat and potatoes of this text are in plain ol' English. You'll have no problem absorbing the material contained herein as it's communicated very well.

The book starts off with a (necessary) brief overview of Pentatonic scales. It then walks you through an evolution which takes the Pentatonic scale, morphs it into the major scale, then into its modes, and way beyond as well. It's rather eye-opening to see just how similar one scale or one chord progression is to another, how they're all functioning and how they interrelate.

If you're a composer, songwriter or theory book addict, you'll definitely want this in your collection as it demystifies a lot of material and answers a lot of your questions. You'll be able to tinker around with some really 'colorful' stuff after diving into this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a must have! 30. November 2014

This book provides thorough explanation of the derivation of scales and modes. In doing so, it gives you that starting point you've been looking for to branch out.Through clear, very concise explanations you inevitably explore new areas that you would not have otherwise. Mine is tattered, stained and hunched over because I never stop going back to it for reference and new ideas. It is hands down a unique and user friendly alternative way to looking at music and internalizing its very core.

very condensed 1 page is equivalent to a chapter. i found it a good reference and their is a handy glossary of terms some of which are unique to the authors. i am learning a lot and it makes me think. good intro to modal chord progressions and many modal and exotic scales. quite abit of a jazz slant on things.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Jazzy 25. Mai 2013
Von Henri Renie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is much more jazz oriented than I expected. It does give cadences for each standard mode, which is helpful, but they seem to avoid the Locrian mode, which is the most interesting and challenging, and for which I have devised cadences. They also do not go into other scales. Their analysis is based on the fourth, rather than the fifth, which I didn't quite understand. They invent terminology that I find quite unnecessary. They don't go into composing guidelines for working with overtones, which would be what I am looking for. It is quite helpful, just not as much as I wanted. It's a start.
