How to connect yout technique to your playing

SCALE FUNCTIONS – PRACTICE LIKE THIS IS MORE EFFECTIVE
How to connect your technique to your playing
Getting inspired by my technique, yes it is fun to be able to execute. I need more technique, yes of course, but not for the sake of the technique.
Do it for the sake of music!
I believe the goal with technique exercise is to practice great applicable material which is fitting directly into melodies and solos which you will be playing.
And not to practice material we will not use on a daily basis.

Getting into improvisation and approaching jazz improvisation is completely linked to playing bebop. 
There is no way around it.
