Brawlin’ with the bubble boy
I love Seinfeld – and the title of this email reminds me of one of my favorite Seinfeld episodes, the “Bubble Boy” episode – where George Costanza has an ill-fated Trivial Pursuit match with the afore-mentioned boy in a bubble, and an argument takes a dramatic turn for the worse…
What made me think of this episode?
Because I’ve been working on a new set of lessons lately, on a jazz standard that has a name that kind of rhymes with “Brawlin’ with the Bubble Boy”.
Before you read on, guess which on it is…
Stompin’ At The Savoy!
Why this tune?
Well, I was greatly inspired by this rip-roaring version by none other than the great Joe Pass:
The best part?
My new lesson series will show you the exact steps to putting together a “Joe Pass-ey” sounding version, complete with chord melody, tasty comping, and plenty of cool single line soloing concepts inspired by the Passalaqua himself.
“How do I get this incredible lesson series?” I hear you ask.
Simple, my apprentice. Jump on board my monthly jazz standard Club and get access to the lessons when they come out in a few days (just sending the videos to my editor now):
