On Green Dolphin Street – Keith Jarrett

Keith Jarrett uses a lot of pentatonic based melody lines, and he plays through the chord changes. Although his technical skill is impressive as always, I’m always more intrigued by the way that his melodies tend to sound like songs that were precomposed. To be able to generate melodies that sound so natural in an improv setting is a rare skill. Transcribing his solo was hard for me because rhythmically, I had trouble identifying the down beat and chord changes.
