everybody has a different learning curve.....have you memorized your scales yet??i mean do you really know all keys?? then how can you play a lick in all 12 keys??? i get more mileage out of certain solos and tunes ive learned than everything else...so i guess id say if it really speaks to you,,then learn it...memorize EVERYTHING?? thats a tall order

funny,when i was 12 i went to the KOOL jazz festival...it was my first time seeing many greats...and i still remember that as i watched Art Farmer,Paquito....I couldnt just enjoy the music...I was trying to memorize every lick as they played it...of course I didnt

my playing always seems to go back to my top "pet" licks

while studying at Eastman it was said MANY times...if you want to be a Jazz legend ,develop 10 original 2-5-1s of your own
