A few weeks ago, I wrote about and posted a great Philly Joe Jones lick. The idea was a result of a lesson with one of my students who is working on her jazz soloing. I saw this same student again this week. You know where this is going? That’s right! I’ve got another great Philly Joe Jones idea for you.
Once again, the PDF that has the lick shows you both how PJJ played it, and a little update with how I’ve been applying it in my playing. It’s a great lick–a little bit flashy. Alright. The details…
This is a 16th note phrase that Philly Joe plays pretty fast; around 170 bpm. I loved the idea immediately and once my student left the lesson I started practicing it. I changed the accents and orchestration a little from how PJJ played it, and I use it as 32nds instead of 16ths. It’s killer!
Here’s the PDF: Nasty Lick #110, another Philly Joe Jones Lick
