so i have been really trying to get into some slow loungey kind of jazz. and i was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to achieve such a sound/ mood.

basically the stuff along these lines...


The things im hoping to learn here would things like certain scales/modes that are particular to this type of "blue jazz" as well as progressions, chords, and people to look into.

also any other tips or subtle things i can do to sound authentic, i would be really appreciative.

Thanks for the help.
hi playdoh,
thats a great video there ,
the solo kept returning back to blues scale.
for turnarounds i think i heard some triads of dominant 13 chords :
in C :
and dominant 7th arpeggios
descending in semitones.
the blues scale in octaves
i hope this starts you off in the right direction

On topic, Dominant 7ths, Major 7ths, minor 7ths, etc. I know its a brief explanation, I don't have much time. Scalewise, try the modes of major, Harm. Minor, Melodic Minor. But its alll in the phrasing.

Indeed, this is the kind of jazz I wanted to be able to play, I know my modes and stuff, but how do I apply those into jazz and come out with this "loungy" style. :]
