Senior Jazz Band Practice Resources
Use the resources below to help construct improvised solos for our festival piece "So What". There are two rhythm section backing tracks for the solo section that you can download; a slower one for learning at 100bpm and a quicker one at 130bpm. Make sure you can hear the chord change, and try some different notes of the scale on each!
You can also check out this video/transcription by the amazing Remi Bolduc of McGill University to see how Miles Davis himself interprets the scales in the worksheets below.
The Wiggle Walk
Check out the video below of the sublime Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra playing "The Wiggle Walk".
Try playing along with the recording and make all your articulations sound like the pros!
