Very excited to be presenting again for The Milwaukee Jazz Institute! 

In this workshop, we will continue discussing some of the basic challenges of soloing on the bass, examine a step-by-step process for developing freedom in improvisation, and identify some of these concepts in classic examples from great jazz musicians.
