This week is all about using the melody from this famous jazz standard as a springboard to creating your own lines. The melody is always the place that I start for solo ideas. Why not use something that’s readily available, and very well written, as a starting point for our improvisations? If you listen closely, you’ll hear many of your favorite musicians quote melodies on a regular basis. The material we are presenting this week comes from a brand new video course called Standard Time: Take The ‘A’ Train where we use 11 video lessons to give you the skills necessary to play this tune in any situation you find yourself in. Check it out today!
