Jazz on Toast!

Jazz on Toast!


Puzzle Pieces: Jazz on Toast! is an improvisatory piece using graphic notation rather than staves and notes. The backing track is based on a repeated 12 bar blues chord sequence, with suggested notes for improvisation in each bar.

Each “slice of toast” represents a bar of music. The letters are notes of the chord. Beginning with the largest letter in each bar, play the notes on a chosen rhythm. Try using breakfast items as inspiration for your words/rhythms! (There is a sheet included in the instructions with some examples).
