Regardless of what you think of the Suzuki Method as a whole, the concept of "Play beautifully music beautifully" has merit. For those not familiar, a core part of the Suzuki Method is a progressive repertoire of songs designed to slowly introduce techniques and build skills. It is heavily based on a Classical Repertoire, but there's no reason it can't be adapted to any other style of music.

So, what I'm looking to build is a list of Jazz Solos/Melodies to use in a similar fashion: Single Note Melodies, Chord Tone, Chord+Melody, Walking Bass+Melody, into "Full Scale" Improvised Solos, etc.

I'm not looking for chord/scale, rhythm, comping, etc. drills -- that's all "technical skills" that would be a different part of practicing. It's also technically un-Suzuki, but that's not the point.
