In this session of The Jeff Lewis Trumpet Podcast, I go over how to improvise on the jazz standard “I’ll Remember April” using six different major scales. I also discuss chord theory, scale analysis, and modes used for improvisation.

In this particular episode, you will learn;

  • The six major scales you can use to improvise over the entire song.
  • How using major scale modes is one of the easiest ways to navigate jazz theory and chord changes.
  • What Dorian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, and Locrian scale modes are.
  • An easy way to practice jazz improvisation if you are just starting, or a grizzled veteran!
