Jumpin’ Jack is a fun way of learning about form and style.
Common elements of Bebop are fast tempos and improvisation, often bebop bands played tunes that were not designed for dancing unlike the swing bands.
Jumpin’ Jack is based on a 12-bar blues chord pattern with a catchy melody played in unison, with added solos, and it is an easy piece to expand using repeats, as players gain confidence with improvising.
