Custard: Bar #4 would be more a Bb dominant sound. Since it's not a II-V-I to a major, don't start the Eb feeling until bar 4. The rest of what you suggested would work, but pretty soon you should start playing all of the chords. In bar 8, for example, you can play various G scales, most of which include a b natural. Again, I know of no better place to see how it's done than Parker's Omni book, or some other online source that has a Parker blues solo written out.

Thank you jjo. So the ii V I doesn't come in until bar 9.

What do you mean by b natural ? I know Bird uses a lot of b9.
Besides studying his Now's The Time, I will also study Perhaps.

He has numerous instructional books for different styles. The one I mentioned is specifically for jazz blues. You can find out more about him at http://harrisonmusic.com. Check out the "Keyboard Style Series" section of his web site for details.

Many thanks Ben.
I will download the ebook on another computer tomorrow as I am running out of monthly bytes on my home computer.

You're welcome, custard apple. But double-check the web site on this title, though. Harrison has a number of offerings in ebook format, but AFAIK Jazz-Blues Piano isn't among them. I think it's only available as a physical book w/ CD.

Regards,

B.
