Bill Evans Major 251 Line
Bill Evans was a true innovator – revolutionising the sound of the jazz trio. His unique style influenced jazz pianists that came after him and even those who came before him.
Bill Evans’ signature sound was rootless voicings. When the root is omitted, the chords voice lead as smooth as possible – these voicings are perfect to play underneath your right hand solos.
You can play this line whenever you come across a major 251. In the lesson we start of in the key of Bb major and then transpose the line into a couple of other keys. If you have time, take the line around all 12 keys… it will be a great exercise!
