Cry Me A River Part 2
In part 1 we covered the first 2 A sections of the tune and now we are going to study the bridge and the final A section. We start by applying a stride style in the left hand with some bluesy licks in the right hand.
The bridge is more challenging harmonically and offers a nice contrast to the first half of the tune. We continue with the stride style and increase the complexity of the chords that we chose to play.
There is an interesting example of quartal pentatonic voicings in the bridge over the Eb Major chord which build a sense of climax into the final A section.
The last 8 bars feature more minor blues vocabulary and we use block chords and a #11 voicing to bring to tune to a close.
