The Power of Pentatonics in Jazz
While surfing for Jazz Blogs one day, I came across the #6 rated jazz blog in the world authored thoughtfully and thoroughly by Alto Saxophonist David Valdez: http://davidvaldez.blogspot.com. Reading his blog led me to another fantastic jazz educator and blogger, Tenor Saxophonist Bobby Stern. His blog is cleverly entitled ‘B Natural‘. Both these guys have put serious effort into providing clear and concise insights into how to practice jazz improvisation. Below is just a snippet of Bobby’s great work. I will be featuring his new e-book Slick Licks That Stick! in future posts. I downloaded it a couple of days ago and have practiced out of it ever since!
