Impressions big sixteen - People Get Ready by The Impressions Songfacts

An understanding of modal jazz requires knowledge of musical modes. In bebop as well as in hard bop , musicians use chords to provide the background for solos. A song starts out with a theme that introduces the chords for the solos. These chords repeat throughout the whole song, while the soloists play new, improvised themes over the repeated chord progression. By the 1950s, improvising over chords had become such a dominant part of jazz, that sidemen at recording dates were sometimes given nothing more than a list of chords to play from.
