To kick off the Herbie series I started with simple line from Dolphin Dance. Simple yet extremely pretty and elegant sounding to play. Herbie is playing triplets that start on the 11 which resolves to a the E, a chord tone. From there he simply is moving up in thirds diatonically and repeats the same phrase until he lands on a D octave and resolves nicely on the Gmaj7 to the 9.
