As promised in my Spirit Music review, I’ve put those two versions of a “White Note Exercise" Bob Brookmeyer had me do when I started studying with him. My initial effort is here, and Bob’s revision is here. Both are pdfs, so hopefully everyone can read them. (It’s useful to put them side by side if you can- that’s what I do.) One notation quirk- the fermatas are there basically in place of footballs. Imagine each adding 4-12 beats, depending on the context.
Also, as promised, new links and blogroll are up to the right- I'm still tweaking, but I think it's an improvement. Feedback is most welcome.
