Mike Stern - Jazz Notes is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 2 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Brilliant Class It has been a brilliant class, it is worth every minute, especially if you know English, I don't know English, but even so I got the most out of this video. It has simple but at the same time difficult tools, which we generally put aside to seek virtuosity or knowledge, it is a way to go back to the bases in a fun and effective way, I leave my GI to connect with other musicians @juanferminsoria. A pleasure !
