[MUSIC]
And that arrangement also had the bebop
ending, where you go to the four
chord with the flat fifth.
[MUSIC]
Which is something that Dizzy Gillespie
started doing a lot.
In the late 1940s, because it's like
the fourth mode of the melodic minor.
[MUSIC]
And
it leaves you hanging in
the air even a little bit more.
I'm gonna play this tune for you,
the same one, on a high E-flat harp.
Not that I love playing high E-flat harp,
but it's the Aeolian mode and
some of you won't have
low E-flat harmonicas.
And so I'm doing this for you just to hear
what it sounds like in fourth position.
Okay?
Here we go.
