Many thanks to Mick Foster for an educational session in which we covered:
“Reunion” by Gerry Mulligan
Although only “Reunion” (a contrafact to “There will Never be Another You”) was covered, it was studied in great depth by looping and practicing over its major and minor ii V I’s and strategic sections. Various soloing strategies were tried such as using only diatonic scale tones (the overall key being Eb) and avoiding licks and cliches.
Thanks again to Mick Foster for a thoughtful and inclusive lesson.
