Default Free-ish way to teach yourself jazz?

i have a book that supposedly covers the entire jazz theroy, buut im wondering is it realy worth it to memorize every ii-v-i combo of every chord, and do everything until i get to the melody just so i can learn how to solo?

oor is there some free vids online that will help me learn faster?

Default LEarning Ragtime

I'm a newbie and so only just saw your post. Have you looked at the ragtime lessons/demos by Dick Hyman on YouTube ? He is a master and I found his tutorials very helpful. He goes all the way from the 'professors' to Art Tatum.

Good luck

There are teaching DVDs available for this one. Explore the net. You have your answers there. However, there will never be short-cuts for learning anything.

Well, I am a fan of Scot Ranney (Learn Jazz Piano, just google). Hope it helps!
