II-V-I Patterns

I have updated the II-V-I patterns yet again. I consolidated some of the other patterns I had (like the Ray Brown ones). There are now 286 pages (or 286 4 bar patterns) to enjoy. Also gone is the Jazz Font in favor of a more clean, professional look using Bill Duncan’s Fonts for Finale.

These patterns were designed to be used with Aebersold Vol. 3, Track 2. Also included is a 24 page reference of the patterns.

If you want some more patterns, I highly recommend Jerry Bergonzi’s Inside Improvisation Vol. 5. There are some really great patterns in there. Enjoy!

Beatboxing On Flute

Greg Patillo has some excellent youtube videos of him beatboxing and playing flute.

Inspector Gadget

Super Mario Brothers!

Excellent stuff. He has a Myspace page (I hate myspace). Check him out!

If you want to learn more about beatboxing, check out Humanbeatbox. They have some videos and tutorials there. I found the site very enjoyable, especially some of the demos. The guy has this English/Australian accent that just cracks me up. (L as in Lollipop).

But seriously, beatboxing and flute is a very cool thing. Coolest thing I’ve heard since Tom Scott’s flute solo on Patrick Williams tune Threshold.

Transcriptions of Harold McNair Jazz Flute Solos

John Devitt wrote “Hello all, for those of you interested in studying jazz flute improvisation I’ve uploaded two MIDI files of transcribed solos of the late great jazz flautist Harold McNair to my website. If you don’t have a sequencer or notation program which can print out the solo part you can download the accompanying PDF files and print them out. The files are strictly for private study and may not be used for commercial purposes. On my homepage just scroll down to the MIDI files area. Hope you enjoy,and, of course, feedback is welcome.
