Here's a great bebop melody that swings naturally and is full of great phrases that will augment a young player's jazz vocabulary. It also features a very distinct alternation between unisons and three-part harmony in the horns and is therefore a great tool for teaching how to approach both.
SOLOS: The solo changes consist almost entirely of II-Vs and are a great introduction to some of the more common harmonic devices found in jazz. Mastery of these changes will make many other harmonic formats (bebop blues, rhythm changes, many jazz standards) much more accessible to a young improviser.
