Movie Reviews

Joe Pass the Blues side of Jazz
D. Cox | Nashville, TN | 05/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great tool for the guitar player who's struggling with the transition from blues/rock style to jazz. Joe really helps guide us down the path we need to follow with this instructional and entertaining dvd."
The next step up . . .
D. Mckay | 03/18/2008

"I rented this at NetFlix and liked it so much I went to Amazon and bought it.
If you are an intermediate level guitar player and you are starting to get bored with the same old blues changes, this dvd is for you. Joe shows you those rich sounding jazz/blues chords that will make your music more interesting, for you, and anyone playing with you. The good news is, they sound more complicated to play than they are. It is also interlaced with Joe's dry, tongue in cheek, humor."
"Great Resource!"
L. Stanford | Texas | 11/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD will give some insight to guitarists about how Joe plays his "chord grips" as he calls them and how he solos over any particular chord or progression.A useful companion DVD would be the "Solo Jazz" DVD by Joe.With careful study,both DVDs will help to give a basic explanation of Joe's style and how he plays.After watching these DVDs,listen to Joe's Cds with Ella Fitzgerald and Zoot Sims and you'll get another lesson on how to comp for a soloist.Highly recommended."
Joe's very cool, but...

"There's no doubt Joe was one of the very best jazz guitar players ever, but as a teacher he was not especially gifted. On this cd is is actually pretty good about explaining the chords, but as far as single note lines goes, he sheds very little light."
