The Corkscrew is something I’ve heard this lick nicknamed as in the past. Charlie Parker played it a lot. I believe it turns up in Dizzy’s playing too. Lee Morgan has some particularly stylish examples in my opinion and I’ve picked out a selection below.
The lick itself is fairly self explanatory. It can be played over ii, V and I chords. The accent on the third of each quaver is what makes it groove hard.
2. The Joker (From Search for the New Land. Read the review here)
You can see the exact corkscrew lick in the second bar, although the whole phrase is derived from the same rhythmic concept.
3. The Murphy Man
The lick can be heard in the second bar and again in the third, transposed to a lower pitch.
