Playing More Melodically

Tone Taster

Miles, for sure. And other great melodic jazz players: Stan Getz, Stephane Grapelli, Jim Hall. Actually Charlie Parker and Coltrane could do it when they wanted to.. and we musn't forget Lester Young and Ben Webster.


Ravi Shankar ain't too shabby a melodic and rhythmic improviser.. sorry, my '60s roots are showing.


The Bach adagio from the Violin and Oboe Concerto is some of the most beautiful melody you'll EVER hear!


Chet Atkins wasn't bad at interpreting melodies either!


Oh, and listen to singers! If you've ever had the pleasure of working with a really good one, you'll appreciate them much more!
