- Part : interplay.PNG
- Medium blues, tempo 110 bpm.
- We play it using a lightly simplified grid : no Bbm6 on measure 2, Fm6 all the way from measure 1 trhough 3 :
Fm6 / % / % / Fm6 F+7b9
Bbm7 / % / Fm6 / Ab7
Gm7b5 / C7b9 / Fm6 Dm7b5 / CM7 GM7
Interplay is a blues in F minor.
I / % / % / I V+ of
IV / % / I / V of
II / V / I VI / bVI VMaj
- F+7b9 = relative dominant of Bbm7, it is a blues cliché. Why aug not 7?
- Ab7 = tritonic substitute of D7, relative dominant of Cm7b5
- Gm7b5 / C7b9 / Fm6 = II V I in Fm
- Last two measures are an odd Fm turnaround ending on VMaj7
3 : Arrangement :
One grid each :
- Intro : bass + guit
- Piano Theme
- Winds theme
- Solos : piano, flute (guitar comping), trumpet (piano comping), guitar.
- 4/4 : 2 or 4 grids. Battery should gently bring back the softer dynamic before the theme.
- Winds Theme
- Piano Theme
- Outro : bass + guit
Finale on the first measure ad lib.
- One first possibility is Fm blues all the way through.
- And of course you can arpeggiate all chords.
- turnaround : Fm or F7b9 can be used trhough both measures of the turnaround.
- measure 4 : F+7b9 : whether play :
- A diminished arpeggio.
- F alt = Gb mel.minor.
- Bb harm.minor (but without actually playing the Bb, in order to preserve the resolution on the next chord Bbm7).
- Measure 10 : V of minor II-V-I is Valt (Caug/C7b9) : play C altered scale with 9d and 13b, do NOT play 2 or 6.
- Tonal scales for each chord : ???
