Welcome to episode 128 of the LJS Podcast where today we are exploring 3 hip 2-5-1 licks. Learning licks is always a good practice for learning jazz language, and 2-5-1 chord progressions are arguably the most common in jazz harmony. This is a great episode to help you take action and practice. Listen in!
Listen to episode 128
My entire goal for today’s episode is to give you one task to go out and practice. So I keep it short and to the point.
I go over 3 hip 2-5-1 licks that you can work on and take through all 12 keys.

Here’s each lick I go over in this episode:
I hope you take me up on my challenge and take one of these through all 12 keys. Let me know how it goes in the comments below!
