Jazz Waltz Technique

Discussion in 'Jazz Technique [DB]' started by jazzcat_13, Oct 29, 2013.

  1. My jazz band is playing On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever). I want to know what keep in mind for my basslines so I am don't to much into the way of the vocalists. Some parts have duplets written and it does call for a walk at one point. Also, my chart has one part that calls for a bassline "in one-broken up", so is this asking for a groove? Thanks for any help?

    One note per bar, with maybe the occasional linking or passing note?
  3. My bandleader wants me to stick mainly to that so your right.
