Jazz & R&R Horns session 11

Good morning everyone,

This week in lesson 11 we continue our look at passing chords with the diminished passing. Typically I use this one when all else fails because diminished doesn't define key-center and is rather ghostly in color, but is handy at times.

In other news, The Sean+Fred Show Sextet is still busy working in the studio on the new tracks and on Friday at Ivories Jazz Lounge we performed "Pink & Powder Blue" for the first time. The band needed something uptempo in 3, so I wrote this one out in 6/8 and it turned out surprisingly well. Hard to know about a tune until you run it through it's paces.  One of my favorites that are working on is Sean's "Cloudburst." His scat on this is something to behold. Simply awesome.

Would love to hear from you in the comment section.
Have a great week.
