On July 11, 2018 in Bluffton, South Carolina at a great listening space/bar called "The Roasting Room," I got to perform with one of my favorite people on the planet. Hope you enjoy it!
My good friend, Tama Shutts came over today for a vocal duet over Rhythm Changes. Super Fun! If you'd like to see more duets from Tama and I, check Jam Of The Week on Facebook. You can see Tama perform if you're in So Cal over at Cal State Long Beach with "Pacific Standard Time."
Hang out with me and let's play my favorite game!

Is anyone out there really tone deaf? Let's take a survey of sorts. I'll walk around asking strangers to sing A 440, and you see how you measure up! By the end, I hope you realize that there is hope for EVERYONE. (Video shot in Claremont and Montclair, CA)
Chances are, if you're a beginning jazzer, you don't swing yet. You may think that you do... but you probably don't yet! I was once you. This is how I learned to swing. Hope it helps all you future swingin cats.
Taking the tune, Summertime, we discuss what a "2 feel" is, and how the different players of the rhythm section go about playing it, and when to use it. Also shown, is an accompaniment style for playing this tune.
This is one of my favorite standards. I really had a nice time playing this one. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for your support and for subscribing and sharing with your friends! Aimee Nolte
A couple of months ago, my student, Matthew Goldberg showed me a piano piece he had written, called "For A Little While." He's on the east coast and I teach him via Skype. Our lessons consist of him showing me a pdf of some composition he is working on, and me telling him what's good about it, and what could be better.
