How to expand your chordal palate and melodic lines by converting to min/ma7 voicings from the Jazz Melodic Minor scale. I will show how the min/ma7 relates to all of the common chord functions: I minor, I major, II subdominant, V7 w/ natural tensions, and V7 w/ altered tensions. By using each function in context of the common II-V-I progression, students can open their ears and create more modern sounding voicings. I’ll then apply each concept over a standard tune to demonstrate how the harmony opens up. Having a wide vocabulary of ways to voice the melodic minor sound will open the door to using it for inventing lines.
