Chameleon

This is probably one of the most famous jazz-funk grooves from Herbie Hancocks's legendary Head Hunters album. Below is the groove along with the less commonly played B section groove, which is also worth a look. In the pdf you will find a few variations that I like to work through with students. As ever play along with original and get the feel.

Harvey Mason, Chameleon.
