Chord Voicings for Jazz Piano (rootless, left-hand, Type A)

"Type A" Rootless Chord Voicings for Piano

"Rootless voicings" on piano (especially for left-hand support) are great for handling big jazz chords that normally can't be covered by one hand alone. This video tutorial  shows you how to play a rich sounding II-V-I in the left hand, while allowing the bass player (or you, on another beat) to cover the root.

This is Part One of a pair of lessons, covering "Type A" voicings.  The second lesson,  covering "Type B,"  shows another way of executing the same idea, only with the notes in a different arrangement.
