Chapter 7: Smooth Jazz – Sticking with the Fundamentals over Multi-Chord Progressions
This chapter offers several excellent examples of the kind of funky bass lines typically heard in “smooth jazz” recordings from the Eighties to the present day. Tasteful, melodic bass parts are featured along with jazzy chord changes and repeating two- and four-bar vamps that instrumentalists love to improvise over. Alternating octaves, syncopated 16th-note rhythms and percussive ghost notes again figure prominently in the construction of the bass lines Matt offers.
