MASTER THESE techniques ON ANY STANDARD

Here are the technical and melodic tools you should master on any standard
Blue Bossa, Perdido, Autumn Leaves, Blues, Pent up House
Beginning with 5 basic standards is a great way to start improvising.
I have chosen 5 standards which are relatively easy to begin with.
Easy melody and easy chords.
What do you need to know and what tools do you need to master to play a solo on a jazz standard.
On each standard I present one or more technical and/or melodic tools you should work on, to be able to play a good jazz improvisation on each tune.
Get all skills going on each tune and you have the first 5 tunes in the pocket.
