So, what is jazz bebop style? Bebop or bop is a style of jazz characterized by fast tempo, instrumental virtuosity and improvisation based on the combination of harmonic structure and melody. It was developed in the early and mid-1940s. This style of jazz ultimately became synonymous with modern jazz, as either category reached a certain final maturity in the 1960s.
Charles "Charlie" Parker was a jazz saxophonist and composer also known as "Bird" and was a highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop.
Alright, the example of today´s lesson like we already said, it is a bebop line over an D minor chord vamp or static chord. As every bebop phrase has a lot of chromatisms and outside notes...
