Steeplechase was written by Charlie Parker. It is a melody written over a 32 bar “Rhythm Changes”, with a slight alteration: The A sections do not go to the IV chord. This is a great head to know and add to your rhythm changes repertoire!

  1. Sco delivers an outstanding performance, showing all his incredible knowledge about jazz: thats how to play Rythm Changes in a modern way but never loosing contact to jazz-history by citing themes like “Anthropology ” and others: highest level !
