I think pattern learning is an important part of learning how to play jazz, it’s useful to have a few idiomatic phrases to buildup your jazz vocabulary and it’s a great material to practice and develop your skills. That’s why I’m going to show you how to play twenty carefully selected jazz patterns on chromatic harmonica. These patterns are very much inspired by my heroes such as Charlie Parker, Toots Thielemans, Kenny Dorham and John Coltrane among other greats. Now grab your harmonica and let’s dig into these jazz patterns!
