Cork 'n' Bib

All the tunes in this collection have been recorded - used in conjunction with the recordings, I feel this kind of material can be useful in developing a jazz conception.

In order to get the full impact of the music, it must be listened to and perceived through the senses - then practiced to gain technical facility. If I were learning these lines, I would sing with the record for a while - then sing away from the record until I began to be very familiar with the music.

I would then begin to play it - very slowly with a metronome to develop an even time feeling.

I would play the lines very legato; finally I would gradually increase the tempo until I knew the music in my head. Also with a line like "Cork'n Bib," it's fun to play it in all the keys.

There are many different ways to approach this material - the important thing is to have a good time doing it.

Lee Konitz
October 1957
