Tip Of The Day

A while back was a theory tip regarding the use of  major triads for improvisation (with mention I would re-visit this point). Also recall our discussion of upper structure triads. Hopefully you’ve taken some time to employ this in the wood shed. Now, check out Oliver Nelson’s, ‘Stolen Moments’. The sax solo is iconic! The pure genius use of 1-3-5-octave major and minor chord tones is astounding! (also plenty of inversions)
