This episode continues our Lick of the Month series utilizing a line from Dexter Gordon’s solo on Three O’clock in the Morning. We talked about the melody to this tune on a previous episode, but now it’s time to take a look at part of his solo and learn from it. We feature an 8 bar phrase that moves from pure melodic joy into a more bebop approach. We talk about the evolution of the phrase and how you can inject this type of thing into your own playing. Enjoy the episode!
