“My One and Only Love” is one of my favorite jazz ballads. If you have listened to my mouthpiece reviews and sound clips you have probably heard me play this tune a number of times. I love it!
In this lesson, I play through the tune with a play along track from Jamey Aebersold. I improvise through the form of the tune and then talk about the chord sequence and how I approach each section while improvising. I talk in depth about the different elements that I use while soloing.
If you have studied from my books, then this is a good lesson on how to take those different elements and use them over a ballad. I demonstrate everything with the tenor saxophone. (30 Minute Lesson Video)
