So this is one one of
the most common jazz progressions.
Sometimes at the end of a solo,
Miles Davis's band used
to loop this progression.
Like they'd finish playing
the song Green Dolphin Street,
or If I Were A Bell,
one of the old standards.
And at the end, of each solo,
the soloist would give a little cue, and
the piano player, and bass player, and
drummer, would just play three, six,
two, five, one, over and over again.
And the guy would just get
a chance to kinda loosen up,
and play over this nice loop progression.
Let's do our little version
of it together now.
I'm gonna keep it real simple.
Maybe you can try playing
along with what I do, and
then come up with your own ideas.
