Question - What is this System- Triad pairs?
Answer - An immensely powerful innovative improvisational tool!
Simply put, it is superimposing pairs of triads ( major or minor) over a given chord.
When we play triad pairs on top of a base chord we can EVOKE exotic sounds and colours.
Just as a master chef adds special ingredients to a dish to produce a
mouth watering flavours we can learn to colour our improvisations in a masterful way superimposing triads, taking our playing rapidly to a higher level.

NOTE PLEASE THIS IS ADVANCED LEVEL
As a professionell saxophonist i use this exercises for warm up, changing my lines and for lessons. Straight and musically . You don’t have to read a book first. It takes 5 minutes to buy, (down) load and start playing! It‘s not easy, but you can use a metronome first (or slow down the music).

I’m really intrigued with all the materials at jazz duets. It’s all really exciting stuff to explore. I’m really enjoying the Eric Satie ideas right now.

It’s a great product as are all the materials I’ve seen on your videos. I like the fact that they all help to extend one’s vocabulary of phrases and conceptual approach, in my case as I am reasonably OK with functional harmony (within limits) but have trouble finding enough to say on modal material.
