Rock & Jazz Harmony - Mathias Löffler

Understanding the musical world of rock and jazz

In “Rock & Jazz Harmony”, Mathias Löffler leads his reader step by step through the musical world of rock and jazz. All rules (from basic musical knowledge of simple harmonies through to modal harmonies and modal interchange) are clearly explained and substantiated with many examples of songs. The chapters on blues, improvisation and analyses provide greater detail, which can then be applied in rock and jazz music. Exercises help the reader test their knowledge. This book is a must for anyone who is looking for new inspiration and who would like to confidently compose, play and improvise rock and jazz music.

Fellow musicians have all reacted very positively to this book. Saxophonist Jan Beiling describes it as “a veritable treasure chest”, while saxophonist and (film music) composer Klaus Doldinger states: “This is how theory becomes music! The many examples of songs make me want to do two things: play and compose!” Guitarist Michael Diehl is confident that “this book belongs in every rehearsal room and music school”.

This book brings theory to life. It is inspiring, creative and exciting!
