Bob Berg

di Rodolfo Varani


A transcription will only make sense if you listen to what Bob Berg actually plays. In any case, this cannot be explained: Either you hear it or you do not. An analysis of a solo is very complex and I therefore prefer to talk about observations and comments. In addition, I do not have the aspiration to call it analysis. Which scale does he use? Why does a sequence of notes resolve to a certain target note (forward motion) Which are the most frequent target note Why does this chord sound like another chord (reharmonization?)? Why does he play from in to out or out to in? Why does he take the liberty to anticipate or to delay certain notes in relation to the score?
