This is a great 2-5-1 lick over the last measures in a blues. A few great things Wynton Kelly does in this one are his 16th trill, grace, notes and approaches, as always.
In the first measure he chooses to use B natural over the C-7 chord. This note works because it is simply a half step below approach to the root of the chord, the note C.
The second measure has a nice 16th note ornamental trill that slides into a grace note. Very nice texture to work on.
The last measure is a really nice resolution to your phrases. I would practice this in all keys. Enjoy!
Points for practicing this lick:
- Half step below root approaches
- 16th note ornamental trills
- Resolving line phrases in measure 3
