Benny Green – Celia (From the album “That’s Right”) [LOTW #85]

Here is another great line that strings together two 2-5’s back to back. Benny Green’s line seamlessly flow together with ease with his use of approaches, bebop scale passing tones, and motif ideas. There’s a reason he is one of the greats. When approaching this lick outline the chord tones and use approaches and passing tones to connect chord tones when needed. Focus on the rhythmic motifs and melodic motifs.

Enjoy!
