Lesson notes

In our third lesson on Benny Golson’s 1956 jazz standard, “Whisper Not,” we’ll see what happens when we go beyond the basic harmony to explore something a litte more advanced. We’re going to learn a set of two-handed voicings with some alternate and extended chord changes, inspired by the 1998 Jazz Messengers live recording of the tune from the album “The Legacy of Art Blakey: Live at the Iridium. We’ll go through the voicings bar by bar, and at the end of the lesson I’ll demo the whole form.
