From now on I will be publishing several "Improv Etudes" on a regular basis, free for all to download and play.
"Afternoon in Paris" (by John Lewis) is not only a popular jazz standard but in the interest of jazz improvisational skills, it is a great exercise in descending "ii-V7 -(I)" chains.
Available for Eb, Bb, and C instruments.
Check out the solo and feel free to add your own chorus, change a lick, use a tritone substitute, or even practice it in several keys.
Use a play-along from iRealPro! With the App you can change tempo, keys, time signature or style and explore new possibilities.
