    Link 2 JazzRef pdf

    Hi folks!

    Just came across a good looking pdf jazz theory book. Haven't seen it all thru yet but clicking the pages drove me at thinking it's definitely worth taking a look at. Here it comes:

    Yep, I liked it myself after viewing the most of it

    Michael Morangelli wrote a great piece of material on chordal operations, harmonic movements etc. The whole work looks pretty much "complete" and answers a lot of questions regarding modal interchange implying alien chords. And that's the least of it.

    Never heard of Mr. Morangelli before and I'm not promoting his stuff at all

    I've read thru most of now, and when others have had a chance I'd like to have a little dialog about some of the notation and comments. There are at least 2 short paragraphs that totally baffle me, and I still don't get the superscripted 'maj7' notation when attached to a minor chord.

    I'd really like to see this work redone in a more readable font!!

    Bongo Boy,

    I've read the most of it now too and I'd like a chance to discuss it on this forum. I have found minMaj7 example on page 22. I guess it the point is that we mainly use harmonic minor not natural and the author just took it for granted that we consider Maj7 to be diatonic over I degree . Thus given A harmonic minor we would have augmented vii - g# which allows maj7 on tonic chord and Caug (third degree with augmented 5th) as well as V degree has M3 in it.

    There are some things that baffle me too. But I just forgot where I was when I last got puzzled - I should review it again to clear it all up. And yeah - the font takes much brain resources to read fluently enough to grasp the point on the fly Still the pdf is very useful and methodologically well built. I'm yet to read the part about modes and I'll be through.

    Ultra mega best regards,

    A Harmonic Minor Chord Scale

    (ACEG#)
    A Minor Major 7th (R,m3,P5,M7)
    i chord in A Harmonic Minor
    (BDFA) ii Bm7-5 (Bm7b5)
    (CEG#B) III CM7+5
    (DFAC) iv Dm7
    (EG#BD) V7 E7
    (FACE) VI FM7
    G#BDF viio G#o7 (diminished 7) ( I think this should be called m6b5, but who am I to argue with tradition)

    B m3 D m3 F m3 G# m3 B
    Dim 7 breaks up the octave into 4-m3 intervals.
    Since each inversion has the same interval structure.
    Bo7 = Do7 = Fo7 = G#o7
    E7-9 (EG#BDF) if you toss the root this equals the above chords.
    Dim7 can be used to modulate to other keys for instance from A H.M. to (C, Eb, Gb)H.M.
