I was mostly familiar with Duke Jordan because of his famous song “Jordu.” But recently, a friend hipped me to a bunch of his albums, and I am struck by his melodicism and economy. (I’ve been looking for more economical players like Jordan and John Lewis because their solos help me teach vocabulary to beginning jazz students). Anyway, here is his solo on from Chet Baker’s “No Problem” (1980). This blues is interesting because it uses a G7alt in place of a Gmin7 on bar 9. Enjoy!
