    Terrific example, Matt. You're right, it's not on YouTube. I just copied it from Spotify and made a video but it's blocked worldwide. I thought it was open house on YT but apparently not.

    But great example and lovely music, thanks.

    Well I think it’s just a case of listening to a lot of slow ballads, and maybe thinking about where the beat is, eventually you just get a feel for it. Maybe most people spend more time listening to faster jazz tunes, but for some reason I was always drawn to ballads just as much.Like I said before, Dexter Gordon is the go-to guy for this, in my book.
