TRENDS: As Paid Music Streaming Escalates Paying Downloaders Can't Be Left Behind ()
Although paid streaming subscriptions have continued to grow at a steady rate, the far more rapid decline of paid downloads, along with CD sales suggests that streaming services need to grow their paying subscriber base at an even greater rate. Guest Post by Russ Crupnick on Music Watch As rapidly as the music business is moving to paid streaming subscriptions from paid downloads therea€(TM)s an argument to be made that it needs to move even faster. At the MusicBiz conference in May of this year we offered up a somewhat dire forecast for US digital download revenues, suggesting that more than half the buyers would evaporate by 2020. Thata€(TM)s a bundle of lost revenue, as the RIAA estimated 2015 sales of $2.3 B. Revisiting that forecast wea€(TM)re starting to think it could be worse...

10 Modern Improvisation Techniques from Woody Shaw that’ll Rock Your World
modern-improvisation Every musician wants to sound hip and modern… To play complex lines that move outside of the harmony and above the time. Solos that’ll make your fellow musicians shake their heads in disbelief and leave the audience speechless. The only problem is that few players actually get to this point, and even less sound authentic, unique, or even innovative in their efforts. However there is one musician in the jazz lineage who achieved this and more – Woody Shaw. And today we’re going to dive into one of his live performances to uncover some of the key devices he used to create a highly innovative approach to improvisation. For starters, let’s take a listen to Woody Shaw’s solo on the tune Stepping Stone:   The solos and ensemble playing sound complex, however the chord progression for the solo sections is deceptively simple: And by studying how Woody Shaw plays over just two simple chords you can get a glimpse into his larger approach to improvisation.
