Good post. I've experienced this from all angles.
Teaching of course but also an exploratory student of music forever. Much practice time unlocking the secrets within The Stick and creating expressive sounds with the results
Good luck with your new Stick

Correct Alain...
But since the progression sounds resolved on the iim7 that becomes the root in the Dorian mode and thus your V7 becomes IV

Big credit to Peter. We've been meeting for lessons regularly with very measurable progress. But having never tested his jazz side, this was very brave. Sitting in with "the cats" was bold.
Congrats on your musical development and non intimidation attitude

Previously I announced bass legend Jeff Berlin will be performing at LBJF. We now worked out an additional set for Jeff to do a clinic. Open to the public and free.
Probably September 15
