Seamus Blake is one of the best modern jazz musicians in the world. Universally respected for his approach to the music, studying Seamus’ playing should be a thing that we all do on a regular basis. This week we take a look at two different pieces of vocabulary that he plays over ‘Blues Up & Down,’ from the Sax Summit record. Seamus shows us some great devices including a lot of chromaticism. This tune is orignally played at a blazing tempo (250+!!), but in this episode, we slow it down and break down what Seamus is doing. Enjoy the lick of the month and make sure you grab the PDF for this episode!
