John Coltrane - Triad pair download

John Coltrane's  beautiful tune 'Wise One ' from his Classic 'Crescent' album

provides the inspiration for this tutorial.

We take some of Pianist McCoy Tyner stunning harmonic ideas and use them to construct triad pairs which we then interpolate on a static minor chord evoking different sound emotions.

The Triad Pair system is an incredibly powerful tool for the improvisor to master. 

In this tutorial stunning real life examples are used as inspiration.

Note. If you wish to purchase this with a credit card please proceed to the JazzDuets parallel site here: https://gum.co/pHCBG

The instant digital download contains the following files zipped and individually:

  • Mp3 Fender Rhodes play along of the tune
  • The Melody of Wise on for Bb, Eb , C + Bass Instruments instruments
  • The E minor drone Mp3
  • The B7 #9 altered drone Mp3
  • The 5 notated  interpolated triad pair patterns shown in the video for C, Bb, Eb Bass instruments.

Top quality and well done

The material is top quality and well done, as I've learned to expect from Nick. While I will continue to support Nick's excellent work, I've found that I can create my own drones with Garageband, or even use a loop pedal, then try out different triad pairs on my guitar. I think I get more out of that experience. However, these materials can be a good start for the uninitiated. I would have liked to see a PDF explaining Nick's choices of triad pairs over Wise One.


Hi Lawrence! Thanks for the review!

A great addition to the other triad pair lessons I've got from Nick, great stuff and cool sounds. I'd love if there would be pdfs in bass cleff as a standard to your offerings. Anyway, it's good eartraining to transcribe, thank you for your contribution to our practice material! Best Mikael

Coltrane Triad Pair

These are good to use for new sounds ...I would say this is more of a intervallic approach then a purely linear way of thinking and can open up a whole new broad approach way of thinking for your improv tool box.

Triad Pairs- John Coltrane

This music quickly captured my attention. Nicks rendition of Coltrane's "Wise One" is emotionally stunning through his use of hauntingly beautiful and melancholy chord progressions and melody. Even the drone exercises are beautiful when played with the background tracks.
