In Session 7, Matt looks at the two primary ways of playing over rhythm changes. This means taking that exhilarating first dive into “the other way” of playing them – an approach that became dominant by the mid-’40s and that has remained so. Matt also unravels some of the mysteries around the endless unspooling of “ii-V” progressions in swing solos,  learning ii-V licks and, most importantly, where and how to use them.
