B Section Spread Voicings
In this lesson we explore simple voicing options for the bridge of the tune. In the previous module we highlighted the repeating 1625 progression in the B section and now we create 2 handed spread voicings voicing the melody on top.
The Ascending Triplet Motif
In bars 19 and 20 the is an ascending triplet quarter note motif that originates from Duke Ellington’s big band version of this tune. In this course we are going to omit this melodic phrase and explore different harmonic and melodic fills over the 2-bar 1625 progression.
