#beginquote# Bee Bop music uses a 9 tone scale that contains both the diminished 7 and the major 7th. In the key of C: C D E F G A Bb B C. You "Bop" from Bb to B on the way up, and from B to Bb on the way down. Hence: B Bop or Bee Bop. In addition to Thelonious Monk who claimed to have created the scale, we must remember Dizzy G. who made so many great contributions to the style with his amazing trumpet solos. #endquote#
