There are four distinctive sections in the South African influenced composition ‘Base my Life’: intro; tune; bridge or development at bar 13; and then the chorus from bar 17. This last section should be practised slowly at first as there are many changing chords requiring different hand shapes. Recorded with the ‘Jazz Extempore Orchestra’ on the ‘East Meets West’ CD.
