DIG IT! Welcome to SEASON 2 - JAZZ INVESTIGATIONS, Jazz - Standards You Need To Know - Episode 4.

In Season 2 of Jazz - Standards You Need To Know, we are going to go DEEPER into the JAZZ BOOK OF TUNES and give you an idea of the tunes you should be working on, first, if you are new to playing jazz.

AND, the tunes you should continue to be studying if you are an experienced player! This is key because many of these songs are ones that MANY players overlook as they advance in playing jazz.

NOW, DON'T FORGET if you DIG what I do, then,

In Episode 10, SEASON 2 of The Jazz - Standards You Need To Know, we are looking at The Rite of Passage SONG in Jazz, Giant Steps!

Man-o-man - OLEO! And Rhythm Changes! This is one for the books and on for your BOOK!

To me this is one of the marks as a true JAZZ PLAYER. Bebopping over RC and OLEO. I think it is one of the classic jazz tunes and of course it a common call on many gigs as well.

As a side note, make sure to check out the full lesson, OLEO Jazz Guitar Lesson on the channel because of all the detail within this fantastic song.

Of course, as a Jazz Investigator, I take a strong look at The Jazz Standards You Need To Know, and I feel OLEO has so much to offer.

So to find all of this out - see what I just did there?, you know what to do. DIG IT and push play!

Check it out and let me know in the comments.


PS. There is a live demo of this song as well. Enjoy!
