Lick From “Terpsichore”

On Tuesday, November 26, 2013, I will be performing with Michel Delage’s project, Herbie’s Hill. This project showcases the music of Herbie Nichols and Andrew Hill. The music is melodically and harmonically challenging. There are several lines throughout the show that are snake-y and sit nicer on the piano than the saxophone.

I’ve taken one of the lines that is not too difficult, but is conducive to getting opened up.

Here are a few ways that I deal with difficult lines.
