We often think of melody is a group of notes,, which is supported by other notes,( harmony). How about melodic phrases being repeated, in order to create a support for a new melody? Discovered a few new melodic/harmonic pathways, from playing with Donald Washington and Cory Grossman last week. Thanks guys! It was a lot of fun. I have learned to enjoy playing solo- I had the strange realization, that just about any tune can segue into just any other tune. My practice sessions have turned a bit strange. I discovered that the melody of” rain drops keep fallin’ on my head” ( when repeated over and over) fits like a glove with Ornette Coleman’s ” dancing in your head”; so do you call it ” raindrops: keep dancing in your head,and falling”? Come find out, at the Black Dog..
