What do tunes like Miles Davis’ “Nardis”, Wayne Shorter’s “Speak No Evil”, and Chick Corea’s “Spain” & “La Fiesta” have in common? That they all employ phrygian modal cadences, also the subject of this video!
In this lesson, not only do I give you examples of both phrygian minor and major cadences within several standards, but I also show you how to use them to re-harmonize segments of some of your favorite standards. Finally, I show you how to easily improvise over these cadences while adding a touch of Spanish Flamenco to your solos…OLE!
