Bud Powell was clearly and innovator of his time and greatly contributed to the language of jazz we all use today.
In this podcast episode I’m going to analyze Bud Powell’s solo over “Anthropology” but at the same time teach you HOW to deconstruct improvisation solos into what I call “Lego Building Blocks”.
This strategy will not only help you be able to use the ideas quicker, but will allow you to combine them with others in order to create your own solos more effectively.
I absolutely love helping students with this because I use to learn licks and lines and simply plop them right into my solo.
And guess what? It was CLEAR that what I had just played was NOT spontaneously improvised by myself. It sounded fake!
So this “Lego Building Block” strategy is sure to help you with that problem.
