How to Practice Jazz, How to practice hard chord changes!

In this week's video, we're talking about how to practice jazz. My approach is to break it down, just like you would when you're practicing any other musical skill.  

Slow it down, speed it up gradually. Break the music into small/digestible chunks and slowly combine them back together.    

Here I use my tune "Race to the Bottom" to illustrate just how I might practice something hard like this....  

Good luck - and Let me know what you're practicing these days!
