Great topic, Duke! 

Some rhythm tunes I like: Lester Leaps In, Oleo, CottonTail,  Straighten Up And Fly Right, Serpent's Tooth (different bridge but a rhythm tune), Move, Monk's Rhythm-A-Ning, Allen's Alley (aka Wee), and the theme from "The Flintstones" cartoon (usually played in F but it's a fun tune---there's a great video on YouTube of Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis playing it very fast.)

Those are all great song Mark! Yes, I quote the Fintstones theme often...

Great tune, Duke! Always loved this one. My comping seems okay (for something I'm just learning) but the second half of the bridge really trips me up! Have to think about that part. ;o)

Hey, Duke, I've looked on YouTube but can't find a recording of Claude McLIn's version. I can't even find it on Amazon. Any idea where I can find a copy? 

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Mark.  Fortunately I live in Chicago and Bob Koester from jazzmart is an encyclopedia of all things blues/jazz  helped me with the name McLin, but he didn't think he had any records lying about.  The song is on an album called Chicago's Boss Tenors.  I don't think it's on cd but I did some digging. you can listen to it online at the www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/2556   Never Mind plays at the 49 minute mark of the program.

Hi Mark, Its on an album called Chicago Tenors on Chess. Possibly never issued on CD. Not sure. Duke

Really happy to see this lesson (solo) notated this way. Love the "Route 66" lesson series.

Duke, love hearing you and Herb together. (Your version of "Moten Swing" is among my favorite outings by you two legends.) 

This tune has really grown on me.

Duke, this is one of my favorite lessons. Love this groove, though it's tricky to get right. Every time I hear this I can't help but think of Little Feat's "Dixie Chicken" for some reason...

I love that minor i (one) also. I learned this using a C7#9 for the I chord. I think this voicing is better. I'm glad you're doing this tune. Kenny Burrell is one of my favorites and he seems so relaxed when he plays, but man, it's tricky to get some of those lines groove the way he makes 'em groove!
