Modern Jazz Line #17 - Cliche Lick with a Twist - Jazz Piano Lesson

This week's modern jazz line is inspired by a very common bebop phrase I hear a lot of musician frequently playing.  There's nothing too chromatic or "out" in this line but I think it still carries a modern feel.

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.
