http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYCXWRtKkbcI have problems with style, e.g. articulations, tone, etc. Notes and rhythms often come out angry, funk-like or maybe even rock-like. Basically, my solo doesn't belong in a ballad, and I just want to listen to some ballads to get an idea.
AND get the jazz icons DVD. His version of body and Soul is an absolute masterpiece. "What's new" is also on it and great too.Listen to as much Dexter Gordon as you can. I'd suggest Stairway to the Stars and Don't Explain for starters.
