JazzHeaven.com Founder & CEO Falk Willis had been a professional Jazz Drummer himself for 14 years, playing with the likes of Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mark Turner & Kenny Wheeler, as well as running his own businesses for 10 years after that.
The idea for all of this was born, when he asked himself the question what would be a DREAM COME TRUE for the aspiring jazz drummer/bassist/pianist, etc.?
Having been a young aspiring jazz musician himself two decades earlier, the answer was easy:
A website with many of today's leading jazz musicians giving jazz video lessons, with rock-solid how-to information on jazz improvisation - accessible instantly, no matter where one lives!
After over 2 years of pretty much non-stop work with a kick-butt team of videographers, video editors & audio engineers, buying lots of great video & audio recording gear, robbing a couple of banks in the process, and setting up a dedicated video recording studio in Brooklyn, NY, the first 31 videos were filmed, and the first JazzHeaven.com videos ready for release:
Lee Konitz: Talking & Playing
Jerry Bergonzi: Creating a Jazz Vocabulary Vol. 1
Jerry Bergonzi: Creating a Jazz Vocabulary Vol. 2
Jean-Michel Pilc: True Jazz Improvisation
Eric Harland: The Yin & Yang of Jazz Drumming
Ralph Peterson: Jazz Drumming Demystified
Ari Hoenig: Melodic Drumming

Each instructional video features a lesson part of at least 90 minutes (some considerably longer), as well as a 60-minute interview with the artist.
JazzHeaven.com instructional videos are available in the following formats:
