Topics Covered Include:Basic functional harmony, diatonic substitutes, secondary dominants, passing chords, diminished harmony, tritone substitutes, non-functional approaches to harmonizing melodies including quartal harmony, color chords, harmonizing basslines, pedals, slash chords, unavailable tensions and MORE!Not just a dry textbook, it is an engaging and witty guide to developing a more nuanced sense of harmonic color, drama and movement. The Jazz Harmony Book is a course in the process of adding chords to melodies, in understanding how a single melody can give rise to rich harmonic variations.This book will help you learn to speak the language of harmony, to learn the changes of standard tunes, to better understand and create the 'right' chord progressions to these songs, to re-harmonize songs freely in the manner of great jazz artists like Hank Jones, Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau, Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, Gil Evans, Thad Jones, Joe Pass, Jim Hall and John Scofield.Includes 2 CDs of the author playing many of the written examples in the book.
