Misty – Jazz Piano Tutorial incl. Chord Analysis and Improvisation Ideas

Jazz Piano
As always, a basic performance of it and then structure/chord/melody analysis followed by random (what else?) improvisation ideas involving chord tones, the blues and modal theory.

Subscriber request for a tutorial of this classic jazz number based on my pre-recorded version from a while back: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDYFaqDmtZI and here is another example by Erroll Garner which is most magnificent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_tAU3GM9XI

As mentioned at the beginning of this video, I cannot always go over the same theory in every video so below are the three videos you will find useful if chord naming and modal theory is not yet understood:

Chord Naming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORIMDTEyw0s
