I have always loved “Pure Imagination” since I was a kid. I decided to improvise over its changes for 24 minutes today (over a backing track from the ireal app) and wanted you to share it with you. My mindset was pretty much, just to try and have the melody in the back of my mind the whole time and to play what I heard over the top of it, without thinking too much about anything else except what sounds true and beautiful to me in the moment.
Aimee's Top 25 jazz songs to know & autograph :-) People often wonder which jazz tunes they should learn first. I have carefully selected 25 of the most important jazz standards, and placed them in an order that I think is good for beginners.
Compare and contrast my two transcriptions of Bill Evans' recordings of Leonard Bernstein's "Lucky To Be Me" with me. One is the Riverside recording on the album, Everybody Digs Bill Evans, and the other is from a recording someone sent me about 18 years ago, that I cannot identify, unfortunately.

Another extended practice (I have a whole playlist if you're interested) session video for you! I use a backing track from the iReal Pro app (this time with "Rhodes 2", accoustic bass and very little reverb - and try to develop my ideas as I play 25 choruses! I hope you enjoy it!
It's time for some feel good requests to celebrate my DANG BIRTHDAY! Thanks for the fun hang, everyone. Stick around till the end to hear a pretty fun "My Favorite Things." If you'd like to contribute to my channel and music-making efforts, please click here: https://paypal.me/aimn
From 1979-2018, Steve Call taught tuba, euphonium, jazz piano, jazz improv, and jazz history/studies at Brigham Young University. When I came to BYU to audition in 1995, Steve is the one who heard me and decided to let me in to the school with a partial scholarship. He directed The Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band combo that I was a part of for 3 years, and taught me so much about what kind of musician I wanted to be. I owe so much of what I am today to Steve.
It's not really NEW, but it might be new to YOU. A contemporary rhythmic addition to your playing; the all-syncopated straight 8th style which originates from the Brazilian Polka style of guitar playing. Have fun with it and let me know if it was helpful to you!
Ever wish you could play piano while you sing? Maybe you wish you could play for your students or other vocalists, or instrumentalists. In this series, I teach you all of the important steps to start to be REALLY good at it! Walking bass lines, voicings, rhythms, styles...it's all right here.
I know I preach a lot of information about improvisation. I'm not sure that I follow it all in this performance of Harold Arlen's "Let's Fall In Love," but sometimes, I don't know...you just gotta go for it. Improvising in harmony with myself is something I work on quite a bit, but I rarely show it. I hope that will change as I practice more.

I layed down this track and sent it to my friend, Justin over in Atlanta and he worked his magic with those brushes, just like I knew he would. I've always loved this song; this portrait of a street performer who had seen better days. I hope you enjoy it.
Footage and audio from my gig at The Blue Whale in Los Angeles on November 18, 2019 Guitar: Mike Scott Bass: Bruce Lett Drums: James Yoshizawa Audio mixed and recorded by Jonny Maia Video recorded by my husband, John.
Recorded at 2:00am on July 1, 2017 by my sweet new friends, Dominique and Ty Walker from Chicago at The Green Mill. The wonderfully musical and lyrical Eric Shneider ran the jam and invited me to play and then to sing a few tunes. It was an honor to share the stage with this man who has toured with Earl Fatha Hines and Count Basie, as well as to meet and play with the house pianist, Dennis Luxion and some energetic kids who were there to sharpen their skills. It's always an amazing feeling to drive into a new city and immediately have new friends to make music with. Magical.

This video is about Aimee Nolte Live At The Roasting Room (With Taylor Roberts And Justin Varnes) July 2018 Bluffton, South Carolina. I’d like to let you know I got the audio from the house mix at the Roasting Room. Unfortunately, the guitar level in the house was low and distorting at times. It wasn’t that way in the monitors that night...but anyway I’m sorry about the distortion. Also, the video switches about half way through to a worse camera and angle but it’s the best I could do. I was also borrowing a keyboard that was new to me and making me feel uncomfortable all night...but when you are traveling and gigging you get what you get sometimes. Hope you all enjoy it. It was a fun night!
Some fun excerpts from my performance at the Sea Pines country club in Hilton Head, SC with local musicians, Jackson Evans (guitar), Brett Belanger (bass), and Justin Varnes (drums). It was a great way to wrap up the week! Unfortunate lighting, but I was glad for what we got. Thanks to James Berry for running the camera for me.
Once in a while, I suppose I might rant a little bit. This is something that has been troubling me, and I needed to say what I am feeling about it. I think the future of vocal jazz is in trouble, unless we remember the importance of improvisation.
This is a sampling of my 7 video bebop series for instrumentalists and vocalists. Using the blues, the bebop scale, classic licks from Bird and Diz, and much more, learn how to become a great bebop soloist and let's have some fun while we do it!
All The Things You Are: Jazz Improvisation Lesson - For instrumentalists and singers: A very detailed look at the first 8 bars of the popular standard. Discussion includes a very melodic and "ears" approach, modes to use, chord tones to aim for, bebop lines and how to create them, and rhythmic placement of lines to add an element of surprise to your solo.
This is my practice routine for getting altered dominant (#5, #9 chords specifically) rootless closed-voicing chords, and diminished whole-tone scales (sometimes referred to as the 7th mode of the melodic minor scale) under my fingers and in my brain. You can get such a hip sound in your playing if you understand how these notes function in each key.

Gianna's father contacted me and asked if I had room for his daughter to take some lessons. After hearing her play, you'll know why I jumped at the chance. We are having a blast together, and she's working so hard, I just had to share it with you.
Take a look at my collection of transcriptions with me, Sound of Love - My Man’s Gone Now - Nardis - How Deep is the Ocean - Lucky to be me - Danny Boy - Blue in Green - Israel - Milestone - People... and more...
Choosing which altered dominant chord to play during a minor 2 5 1 can be a daunting task, but using a popular holiday classic, I attempt to demystify the process for you and make something beautiful. Recorded using Earthworks SV33 Earthworks PM40 5'3 Hallet Davis Baby Grand

There is so much to learn before you can adequately comp - before you can successfully be the one in the band who lays down the harmony for everyone else. Whether you are a piano, organ, guitar, or vibes player in your jazz band, this video will provide an overview, but also very specific advice about how to comp - from voicings to rhythms to a deep understanding of what your purpose is as a chord instrument.
Some ideas about how to comp on this classic jazz standard, as well as a fun idea at the end of the video based on montuno rhythms. If you'd like the worksheet for that final idea: Comping On Sonny Rollins' "St. Thomas"
Temporary modulations to the mediant and submediant are very common in jazz and popular music. It's important to learn to recognize them when they occur, hear the difference between them and know how to predict them when playing chords by ear.
Can you tell the difference between these iconic jazz vocalists? Let's listen very carefully and notice the subtle nuances as well as major stylistic choices that put each of these singers in a league of their own.
In this video, we pick apart Bill's 1962 recording of Danny Boy from the album Empathy that he made with Shelly Manne and Monty Budwig. We uncover some important elements of his solo piano playing, as well as some insight into his trio playing. The most important element of this recording in my opinion is the way he makes you...........wait for it.
