Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet.

Heated discussion and debate is expected and encouraged, but personal attacks will not be tolerated. Ab and D are tritone subs of each other, and the melody plays b7, 5 and 11 of a D7 chord anyways. No memes, advice animals, or rage comics. It’s pretty clear a few of the chords are wrong, or not spelled right nomenclature.

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

I’ll post the chords here as well: Thank you so much for this! The next two measure are in Bb IV, I. Avoid generic titles “Best bra I haven’t had much luck transcribing much of it, but I did find a lead sheet.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Brad Mehldau: “Resignation” Transcription

I think I’m rather familiar with jazz chord and mehldxu theory, but this is something else. Then the next two measure are really just C minor, Fmi as the iv chord, then i and V7 leading to the Abminor.

As far as playing over it, try and always reduce changes to their core elements of what the FUNCTION is of each chord, and what tonal center you are in. Album mehldah are ok, however get the conversation started! The A section is pretty straightforward, the trouble starts at measure 9.

The chord they are playing is a Bma7, if it was really an Eb7 then there would be a Db, but playing that over the actual harmony makes it pretty clear that’s not correct. I also put a star next to the ones hrad are particularly tricky, either in themselves or because of the surrounding chords.

No pictures of text. You can entirely reduce measure 6 as a dominant chord to G major.

Anyway, I’m looking at Brad Mehldau’s “Resignation” and it contains some very unusual chords. Don’t put your whole collection, that’s useless to the discussion. Hey whoever gilded me, thanks! 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 mhldau has defined his own trio sound, so that is pretty clear off the bat here. Log in or sign up in seconds. Secondly, don’t always trust lead sheets!
