In case you wondered how they do it.

This little video gives us a window into the minds of jazz improvisation. Although it is a bit limited, it is a wonderful supplement to jazz theory.

Make sure you can see the chords that are written in at the tops of the measures. Every note that Coltrane hits has a distinct relationship to the chord that is being played at the same time by the other band members. How's that for mental processing!?

Thanks to Janet for sending this my way!
