Modern Jazz Line #16 - Modern Diatonic Melody - Inspired by Keith Jarrett

This week's modern jazz line is inspired after listening to Keith Jarrett's solo record "Staircase."  Jarrett's solo work is long lasting proof that you don't have to play "outside" to create moving modern melodies.

I hope you enjoyed watching the first 10 lessons from my Modern Jazz Line series.  In these jazz lessons I covered how to become a better improvisor using the ii-V-I progression as a guide.  The next Modern Jazz Line videos will cover the tri-tone substitution used in the context of a basic ii-V-I progression (see example below).  If you haven't read or watched my explanation of the tri-tone substitution you may want to check it out before continuing with the lesson below.
