Lesson notes

In this lesson we’re going to continue our study of Sam Rivers’ jazz ballad, “Beatrice,” with a look at some sample bass lines, as well as another set of comping voicings. For preparatory material relevant to this lesson, make sure you check out the previous Beatrice lesson on the form, root position voicings and guide tone voicings. In this set of 3 more videos on “Beatrice” we’ll start with a bassline with a “2” feel, continue with a walking bassline, and finally move on to a chorus of 3­-note right­-hand voicings.
