Watch the Level 5: Jazz Blues Soloing online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Take 5: Jazz Blues Soloing
It's my course, so I get to recommend my favorite musicians if I want to. That includes Hank Mobley, a frequent collaborator with Lee Morgan and creator of some of the best hard bop of the 1960's. "A Caddy For Daddy", "The Turnaround" and "The Dip" are all variations on the blues form built on some kind of straight-eighths groove. And check out Mobley's acclaimed Workout LP to hear the tenor giant in tandem with guitarist Grant Green.
