Lex Warshawski Two Chorus Bass Solo (5:40-7:07)


Chorus #1 (5:40) Walkin’ Home

Both piano and guitar lightly comped, backing this melodic solo mostly in eighth notes.


Lex started with a nice rhythmically-displaced sequence over the first eight bars.


Chorus #2 (6:22) Walking to Finish Solo

After more solid playing, drawing from bebop and blues, Lex used his last four bars to walk, signaling the end of his solo.


TIP: It is a very common occurrence for a jazz bassist to end their solo by walking in the last bar or two. Use this observation to pay attention to what your options are after the bass solo. In this performance, they took the Head-Out.
