+title: Introduction to jazz improvisation
+tags: audio,music,guitar,coursera,learning,jazz
+---
+
+Since a few weeks I'm learning how to play more interesting jazz solos
+from Gary Burton through his [Coursera](http://coursera.org) MOOC
+[Introduction to
+Improvisation](https://class.coursera.org/improvisation-001/).
+
+What's great about the course is that it forces me to record solos and
+upload them for peer review.  I don't normally publish practice
+recordings as I'm never quite satisfied with them, but this also means
+that many half-decent ideas are never published at all.
+
+You can find my growing collection of improvisation recordings in
+fulfilment of the assignments [on
+SoundCloud](https://soundcloud.com/rekado/sets/gary-burtons-improvisation),
