Standard Studies

To go forward you must first go back, at least when it comes to musicianship. Understanding the harmony behind jazz standards unlocks music. I have spent countless hours alone battling the harmonic framework of so many beautiful classics.

This process continues; actually, it seems to have no end. I will be playing and commercially publishing certain standards that I find particularly romantic and engaging under the name Gideon King: Standard Studies. These tracks will largely be solo performances played on my favorite guitars.  They will be improvised.  The very first will be an electric interpretation of Stella By Starlight.
