TRIBUTE TO JAZZ GUITAR VIRTUOSO LEGEND PAT MARTINO: JAZZ EXAMPLES

Example 1-Minor Topic. In this line we move via D Dorian and D melodic minor. Interest is created by employing some colourful chromaticism that also gives continuity to the line. These long fluid lines employ a double timed 16ths feel with an upbeat that creates/anticipates forward movement.

Example 2-This is an outside sounding line that exploits chromaticism with E whole tone and A altered scales.

Example 4- In this last example we delve into another one of Pat’s long fluid 16th jazz lines. This time there are two bars played over a static C7 chord. In this line we find, Mixolydian, Lydian Dominant, triad inversions, dyad/ 3rds and chromatic resolution.

Enclosure/Target Tones Jazz chromatics for the improvised line

The key to understanding this is to look where the little target tones/enclosure motif/melody starts.

Here we have two.

The first is “OFF” the BEAT

and the second is “ON” the beat

Example 1: “Off Beat” classic target tone/enclosure set-up

Example 2: “On the beat” and in the bar set-up in the improvised line [Target tone/Enclosure]

On the beat jazz Target tone/Enclosure for improv

THEORY:

What you will notice is that the Chord tones are “on” the beat [Strong] whilst the chromatic or unessential notes are “Off” the beat.  

This is the key to how it works and how to create beautiful flowing lines easily!
