The Pennies Ending metabrick is introduced. This is family of 8-measure bricks which is extremely common in jazz standards. Most often it is used to as the last 8 measures. But sometimes it is used as the first 8 measures of a song. Many examples are given of the Pennies Ending occurring in jazz standards.
Meta concepts covered include: IV n Back; Dropping back; Cadence home.
Joins are not discussed in this podcast because, in general, the bricks within the metabrick follow round the cycle or by dropping down a half step (sideslip).
