Posted on February 20, 2010 by Sweets

You may have heard this easy Jazz lick before while listening to your favorite Jazz artists. It would be nice to know if you have heard the lick before, if so, please leave a comment on this post. This really is an easy lick to incorporate into your Jazz trumpet solos, no third valve required!

Easy concert Bb7 Jazz lick.

Here a sound sample played over The Theme by Miles Davis:

How to memorize this lick in 12 Keys:

To be honest with you, I’ve never learned this lick in 12 keys. I usually only use it in a couple keys like C7 and G7, that’s it. You can also play this lick in C Major and G Major as well and it sounds about the same. If you feel motivated enough to learn the lick in 12 keys it can only help your trumpet technique in the long run so have at it.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to show us these licks. I love your site. Find it most valuable in developing fluency in my jazz playing and discovering the scales that the really good jazz guys play that give them that great tonality and color.
