Four Note Groupings on "Stella By Starlight"

Here is a nice video clip of the great Joe Locke playing two written out solo choruses on Stella By Starlight using the improvisational concept of Four Note Groupings (FNG). The technique is concisely explained and exemplified in one of five chapters of "The Complete Guide To Improvisation".

The link below contains a downloadable excerpt from the book with an explanation of the technique, the FNG chart the solo is based on, and the written out solo.
