We’re back with another episode on the infamous Coltrane Cycle. I wasn’t going to create a part 2 for this series but after last week I started thinking about the tune Countdown and how much it confused me when I was learning about Coltrane and how his progressions worked. Countdown is different than Giant Steps, which last week’s episode was based on.
These changes can be used in a multitude of different ways and the more we discover and understand, the more places we can use this interesting harmony. Countdown teaches us how to insert the Coltrane cycle over a traditional ii-V-I and get some very interesting sounds over a progression that sometimes needs some spicing up. So sit back, relax and let’s go a little further with our lesson on Coltrane Changes!
