#azjazzlessons #2: How Horace Silver Builds His Solo

#azjazzlesson #todayIlearned

What I learned today:
From 18:35 onwards on Horace SIlver's solo:

1) Repeated phrases build up tension and intensity
2) Vary ideas with sequences between repeated phrases
3) Go back to similar ideas when at the same section
4) End clearly with a chordal stab to cue next soloist

If you're interested to learn more in depth, lessons are available worldwide via Skype & in person in Kuala Lumpur.
