I was basically always practicing my teen years.

I was not very socially active. I think I feel that with the relationship with the piano. I was 21 years old actually and that was like an altar call or something. Brent: What exactly resonated with you with jazz?

Justin: I think it was the freedom and the creativity. Anyway, I mean, I was hearing great musicians doing it. Thelonious Monks are talking about music is like dancing about architecture. I think it was freedom. Brent: Right. Justin: Yup. Brent: You fell in love with jazz, all these happen now. What happened after that? How old were you? Then, where did you go from there? Justin: I was 21 years old and I was kind of in the middle of a classical piano degree at college which I ended up not finishing because slowly jazz took over I guess.

I did this transition to where I was supposed to be practicing for my juries and actually I did go through the whole process. I played Liszt B minor sonata for my final jury and everything but there was this kind of slow process where jazz started taking up more of my practice time and especially just working in the area of jazz.

I started getting calls from the local musicians and started playing. Brent: Which is the Boise area, right? Boise, Idaho. Justin: Boise, Idaho.

Some great musicians here, the older generation and they started calling me. Next thing I knew I was just a freelancer musician playing gigs in Boise and teaching some private students. You know what it was? It was, okay, I began this process of having my kids learn by doing, having my students learn by doing, not just by practicing. Brent: Right, right. So like going out and playing, is that what you mean? Justin: Yes, getting you guys out playing every week and always preparing for the next performance and then, this is … Okay, I know this is exactly what … Okay, maybe discovering jazz was a times the Beethoven but the first time you have one of your students like a kid, teenager, do something that they know actually move the people in the room.

They hit that space themselves. The first time that happened that was it. Just a little bit more background for the audience listening today, the school ArtsWest you started it now.

Actually, I just felt this need to create a community. Then it was a full-on private school for young musicians and artists and dancers actually.

Doing all the academic work in the mornings and then first half of the day, second half of the day getting time and energy to invest in their art. Brent: Right, right, absolutely. That was the year of the school started officially is when I came on and I was really glad to be a part of it. We had a jam session and we would all go out there. Everybody was there every single week. All of your students were there, we were all playing the tunes we were working on and that was really special especially for younger musicians that were trying to learn and having that place to play.

Tell me a little bit about that, tell me a little bit about the power that you think that brings. I could even talk about that if we get there but I think number one is that you learn a hundred lessons from performing. His coach says baseball is a game of failures. My son Jordan wanted to learn baseball.

Justin: Exactly. Brent: Yeah, I can totally resonate with that. Now, I want to talk a little bit about the stuff that you do teach your students. One thing that I really love about what you did for me is you just told me what to do. I think that ended up being like three jazz standards a week and then my aim was 32 bars, learning 32 bars of the solo every single week.

We were doing that. Tell me about some of those things that I just talk about, why are those things that you had me do, learning tunes, transcribing solos, all those stuff, why are those things that you have your jazz students do?

I mean, I do all of those things now but I guess my approach is a little different. This is really different, this might not fit with the learn jazz standards concept but if you want to write country music song for this hour you get to do that.

Whatever it is you wanted. You have to keep your ears open to the whole thing and be curious so I spend a little more time letting them develop, even start begin to develop their own conception and sound from the very, very beginning.

Justin: First time. You almost need to discover that like right off the bat. Then the other half is jazz training. The other thing I guess is changed a little bit is some of my musicians really resonate, my young musicians really resonate with jazz and that is what they want to do. Anyway, this other half, the jazz improv I teach it as a spiral. What I do is I actually with my high school kids and junior high kids we only work on ten tunes for years just ten.

Then we do another. Then, back around again the guitarist learn the first set of voicings and the background again, they do their first transcription and then and so on and so forth. This is my way of doing it. Of course, obviously every week you interview someone and a different way of approaching it is shown to you. Even to just become a good solid professional jazz musician just the craft let alone the art which is a whole other thing, that in and of itself it requires such a commitment.

It can be very intimidating. Every tune is universe like that spiral could continue forever. Justin: You know what I mean? I love the idea of focusing in on ten jazz standards. If you just really focus on a handful of them you can get so much and learn so much about the harmony and in a lot of ways at least in jazz standard repertoire you can start just learning all of them by simply understanding the harmony of a handful.

Justin: Yes. I feel like you found this incredible sweet spot which is so cool and so amazing to hear. Justin: Maybe. Brent: You know what? I love that. Justin: I was young. Brent: No, but hold on. All of my friends were going to college, I was not.

What you did is you kept me busy for an entire year working toward something and you gave me a lot of stuff to do and it was amazing stuff to do. Again, I thank you so much for having me do all that stuff.

Sometimes each student has a different need and not to say that I was practicing I think five to six, seven hours a day and that was insane but like I said, that kept me busy. That really jump-started me in the direction I needed to go especially as a little bit I would consider a little bit of a latecomer to the music. Okay, awesome. Justin: Sure. Brent: At least in the beginning stages, what should they be focusing on? What should their practice session look like if they have an hour of time to spend?

Brent: I love that. Justin: Transcribe the melody to the tune and most people play this tune in C minor. Step one, find a place, find a jam session.

Go to YouTube, get the learnjazzstandards. Justin: Backing track, yeah, sorry. Brent: Yeah I put those up like almost ten years ago and for some reason a lot of people liked them, I guess people like backing track so there you go. Then show up at a jam session and do it in front of people and just be okay with whatever happens. It may work and it may not. You might fail. Brent: I really love it because this is obviously been a theme of our conversation today is just going out and doing it.

You have to go out there and do it. I keep having my students, I found this actually, especially with guitarist. Navigating that whole thing and how harmony, how the play changes, how to improvise lines over harmony that seems to come together for me within instrumentals when I make them learn how to play the chords on the piano.

The next thing I would do is learn to play the changes on the piano. Then, I would say once you are comfortable with these underpinnings, the harmonic underpinnings of the music. Brent: When you say transcribing do you mean actually writing down or do you mean just learning it by ear or do you mean both or what do you mean by that? Justin: No, right now I actually just mean just learning it by ear. I just wanted to clear up the terminology.

Justin: Yeah, I know. These are things I think you probably hear on a lot of different podcast. Then, I think Chet Baker is a good starting point. I have a lot of my students start with Chet Baker because he plays the changes. I like that. I like starting with him. You taught that to me too so I really appreciate that.

Justin: I have to again go back to, boy, this is good.

I had about five come to my head. You actually know Kobie Watkins I think, Brent. Brent: Yeah, yeah, absolutely. Of course. Justin: He has a band. Brent: He played with Sonny Rollins for a while, right?

Justin: Yeah, he played with Sonny Rollins for years. You know, if I was going to go with one experience, this was actually another show I was playing and it was with this incredible drummer, Ra Kalam Bob Moses, his name.

We did this little mini tour.
