-Alright, so there's a Jazz Festival this weekend and there's possibilities for outstanding soloists awards, and I think it would be killer to win, but I have no idea how I practice for a solo. I know you go through patterns, but when you get up to play your solo, how in the world to you combine them all to make them good? I could sing a good solo right on the spot before I ever got into jazz, but playing one is a whole other story unless you have perfect pitch.
The song I'm soloing on is Morocco, if any of you know it, and the chord changes are pretty simple, but I just don't know what sounds good. (I don't have the friggen peice with me, but I can get it tomorrow.. If anyone's willing to wait to help me) What's worse is I'm a flute player, so I already stand out however not in a good or bad way, until I play. If I suck, I get laughed at more than a sax would, if I'm good, I get praised more. Help if you can =/
