Chopin’s Licks (Via YouTube)

Is he playing “licks” or “passaggi?”

From the website…
This video is part of a collection of videos which Frans Elsen recorded during workshops that Barry Harris gave at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague between 1989 and 1998. Frans Elsen was a very important Dutch pianist, arranger and educator of Jazz. He and Barry shared a mutual appreciation of each other’s music and were close friends. This material has been edited and selected by Frans himself. It gives a unique insight into Barry’s wonderful ways of teaching and his extraordinary musicianship.
