More super-cool bluesy phrasing in this example. i’d like to highlight the unison idea in bar 4 that demonstrates playing the same note on two different st4rinxgxsx,xexxxpxloxxitxing the contrasting tones and allowing us to create rhythmic interest on a single note. The origins of this device in jazz can be traced back to saxophonists such as Lester Young (check out his solo in Count Basie’s Lester Leaps in); horn players refer to this technique as ‘false fingerings’.
