In this essential etude, we use the chord changes for the classic swing era hit song "Sentimental Journey". In this etude, I demonstrate the concept of melodic development using bluesy ideas. Without the blues, there is no jazz. Notice the first musical statement and how it develops. Also take notice of how the medley is present at the bridge. It's always a good idea to improvise around the melody.
