That was a great read on the Masterclass. I found it VERY interesting and dissapointing that someone like Woody sho stated that he wanted jazz to proliferate and become more popular and players to become more skilled - refused to give out the books he studied from or the technical excercises that he used in practice. Thanks to people like Jerry Coker who have tried to study and glean pracitical elements of jazz to give to developing players who don't get to learn jazz on the road.

So Ok, how would he use these fourth interval stacks - which btw---are the perfect start to the Star Trek Theme! They are open, but did he use them as small motifs in his solo's or as solo structures or what?

As far as pentatonics - did Woody use a lot of pentatonic scales for his improvisation?

Ever notice someone like David Sandborn used pentatonics almost every solo? It's fun and easy technically, but it does grow predictable in about....5 minutes?
