What are some possible scale choices to blow over a 7+9+4 chord?
For example the bridge of Girl From Ipanema has a D7+9+4
How about eb Melodic Minor?

D alt would also work

D D# F F# G# Bb C D

one of my teachers actually used this tune so I could learn how to apply this scale

Thanks appreciate it. The D alt or super locrian scales have the same notes as the Eb melodic minor. SonyMobleytrane : did you mean A dim half whole? That one would be the same notes as Eb Half whole. or did you mean regular A dim?
This is going in my notes and through my horn at todays gig.

Yeah I read it fast and thought he said half diminished
The more I deal with music theory (both as a player and a teacher) I'm continually reminded that it's all a finely woven web, and there's always more than one way to get to (or label) anything...

I need context. Which measure of the bridge? The bridge is like 16 measures long. I would probably opt for the altered scale if I didn't have context.
