Anyway, I’m looking at Brad Mehldau’s “Resignation” and it contains some very unusual chords. And secondly, what scales might I use when improvising over them? Thank you so much for this! Then the next two measure are really just C minor, Fmi as the iv chord, then i and V7 leading to the Abminor.

First of all, how could I voice them on piano? It’s pretty clear a few of the chords are wrong, or not spelled right nomenclature. Avoid generic titles “Best ever! Ab and D are tritone subs of each other, and the melody plays b7, 5 and 11 of a D7 chord anyways. And I think it does, at least I know what to practice to be able to play over it.

[Piano] Improvising over/voicing some pretty funky chords on Brad Mehldau’s “Resignation” : Jazz

bra The chord they are playing is a Bma7, if it was really an Eb7 then there would be a Db, but playing vrad over the actual harmony makes it pretty clear that’s not correct. But for now, forget all the passing chords. I use the term “funky” pretty loosely. Funny, the two times I’ve been gilded have been about theory related things haha!

The A section is pretty straightforward, the trouble starts at measure 9. I’ll post the brrad here as well:. No memes, advice animals, or rage comics.

Once you break it down you can really get a handle on it!

Want to add to the discussion? One more thing to note, one of the many cool things Brad does, is play the Gminor 1st measure a sections as a G7 V of c immediately to get to Cminor in the 2nd measure, much like you would in a minor blues to get to the iv chord on the 4th measure.

And of course Mehldau really has defined his own trio sound, so that is pretty clear off the bat here. I haven’t had much luck transcribing much of it, but I did find a lead sheet. Heated discussion and debate is expected and encouraged, but personal attacks will not be tolerated.

I think I’m rather familiar with jazz chord and scale theory, but this is something else. You can entirely reduce measure 6 as a dominant chord to G major.
