Whenever we dedicate time to internalizing musical material, it is ideal to choose structures that are applicable to many common jazz situations.
This lesson focuses on one such structure that I have
affectionately labelled the ìcrunch chord.
There are two main reasons this voicing is so versatile.
First, it contains 2 tritones, so it can be used on 4 different dominant chords.
Second, it contains many different smaller chords within its overarching structure.
The relationships between these chords within the voicing create a unique harmonic texture that is useful for harmonizing any melody of your choosing.
