The II-V-I pattern is the most common pattern in jazz music. The more adept you are at playing this pattern in all the keys the better your facility in the jazz language. In the past 20 years I have been keeping a notebook of these patterns. I’ve tried to limit the ones in this 80 page book to the hippest ones and to strain out the ones that are more popular or overused. In my opinion these are the best Minor II-V-I licks that I’ve come across in the past 20-25 years. There are 80 licks in this 80 page pdf file. Each lick is transposed into all 12 keys in treble clef and is easy to read. Trust me when I say that these things will keep you busy for a long time but once mastered your playing will improve incredibly. The cost for these patterns is $9.99. You can print this file and get to work immediately. Have fun. I hope you dig these as much as I have over the years. Thanks, Steve
Here’s a sample of some of the lines that are in the book. I’m playing them on the tenor sax.
