I was thinking of putting this in the “earworms” thread because it bugged me all day yesterday until I finally located it late last night. It was pure happenstance that I finally settled on Art Farmer - Stablemates as the source for the little final phrase that is repeated several times in this clip. The first one starts at 00:11 and the next repeat of it is at 00:35 and there are several others.
If you have similar “unforgettable phrases” or riffs or whatever, go ahead and mention them and maybe we can build a library of such things.
On a related theme, I always thought that Miles Davis’s Four was just a ripoff of somebody’s signature close to any number of tunes. (Probably Dizzy’s).
So other such things are fair game in this thread that I still can’t think of a catchy title for!
One other example, just in case what I’m describing isn’t clear, would be the phrase in Seamus Blake - Peggy’s Blue Skylight from 00:18 through 00:22, which also get repeated several times over the course of the clip.
There are dozens more such things in my memory that I find hard to pin down to there source from time to time, but yesterday I just decided to get that particular one out of my head!
