Motives-also referred to as motifs licks or cliches-are the building blocks of a good jazz vocabulary. This book shows how motives may be developed using simple five-note major minor and diminished scales and how to apply chromatic embellishment to those scales. The magic appears when you discover that any motives created from these scales may be superimposed over a variety of chords with equally good results. Includes detailed explanation and pages of motives in a variety of harmonic situations including standard chord changes. Also included is a CD of practice tracks with play-along parts in the book transposed for all instruments. Expand your creative universe! Over 100 pages.
