“Beatrice” is a tune written by the famous jazz musician and composer Sam Rivers who passed away in December of 2011. Sam Rivers was a very prominent and influential jazz artist and will be missed.

 

Many musicians love playing this tune. The melody is lyrical and modern, and the chords are a unique combination of modal harmony and traditional harmony (ii-V-Is). Musicians often call this tune when they want to play something hip. This is definitely a tune you’ll want to have in your repertoire!
