Ive been treating the Dm7-G7-C13b9b5 as a ii-V-i
I really can't find any thing to fit over that C13 b9 b5 chord.
Ive tried playing it as a normal dominant 7th and that doesnt work. Diminished scale doenst sound any good and neither does alt scale. It doesnt even sound like a C chord to my ears on the aebersold play along I have. (I only have the play along track and not the actual book with chords)
The only thing that sounds ok is if I play augmented triads from the root and the 9th giving a whole tone type sound. Can anybody suggest how to tackle this chord? Is my sequence correct? Any advice.... I play in a boppy style normally... lots of chord tones and approach notes but it doesnt seem to work for me over this tune! thanks
I think you answered your own question. After you transcribe the solos you want, write it out with the chord changes over and analyze what they are playing. Also, check out Joe Henderson's version on Tetragon.
