With this lesson, we will start to get into my "Bird-ology Phrasing Studies" to improve time, phrase lengths, and intensity levels.
For starters, on these "Bird-ology Phrasing Studies"... I have begun with the first four bars of Birdís third chorus on "Donna Lee". Try to get EVERY key as smooth and connected as the first key. Once you get into this, try to pick some Parker four bar phrases and do what I did here, BUT... by ear. More studies like this are coming in future lessons.
