Artist: Scott Colley
Album: This Place
Listen to the tune here.
The solo starts at 0:28
- The tune has an 18 bar ABAC structure (A = 4bars B = 6bars C = 4bars). Listen to recordings by Sonny Rollins and Miles Davis and memorise the tune.
- As always Stewart is taking inspiration from the melody of the tune. Sing the head as you listen through and notice how and when he's using the melody for inspiration.
- Listen to how he plays groups of 2 that go over the bar line (from bar 8)
- Notice how Stewart often avoids accenting beat 1 to create rhythmic ambiguity (a difficult skill to master in unfamiliar time signatures).
