Tune: “Little Sunflower” by Freddie Hubbard. We did the 16-bar A, 16-bar B, 16-bar C form. Kinda hard to count! Ouch! ‘Colorado’ and “Real Book Vol 2” flavors just repeated the 16-bar segments. D minor chord: Suggested G major pentatonic.
Aids and apps discussed:
- iReal B (or iReal Pro) (iOS app) – Play along Real Book. Can knock-out a specific instrument; good for removing the piano part. http://www.irealpro.com/. The problem with Aebersold recordings: Can’t remove the piano part, for example.
