In jazz, a “lick” is a commonly-played motive, usually performed as part of a solo. James L. King III’s Delickscious! takes several common licks including the famous/infamous “The Lick” and places them in the context of a blues in F. While this composition is not intended to be a comprehensive list of licks (that could take many pages), it is a good start for budding improvisers.
