Hey Jack!

The notes are Bb D Eb E F

What he's doing is going from the I to the V by going chromatically up from the third of Bb(D).
If you listen to the end of "A Train", you'll hear that same kind of line extended all the way back up to the root - It's the standard Ellington ending.
Hope you find this helpful.

Good Luck,


: Looking for a Duck Dunn line that he uses in the Blues Brothers cover of
: "Flip, Flop & Fly". In B flat; It's the first solo break, just before they go to the five he breaks from the pattern and does something where he is "Stepping Down" so to speak to get to the five.
: Would like to get tab or just the notes or something to get this line and possibly the theory behind it.

: Thanks
