I do this a lot, too. It sounds so...right. But, so predictable/cliche.
Bb13 implies a dom 7th. Bbmaj13 (or more likely Bb6) would imply a maj7th. It's confusing, Bb9 would imply a dom7th as well. I don't know the history, it's just the way it is.
OK, thanks. I'll have to remember that. Serves me right for not being able to read music/learning to play by ear.
I took a great Grant Green seminar with David Hamburger (who’s wonderful) at NGSW in ~2003. Love it.
That's how I learned! But at some point if you want to play/communicate with others it becomes helpful to pick these things up....
Yeah, I'm working on it. It's not always the most intuitive thing. My ear is a lot better than my brain for theory.
Wow I didn't spot that! Yes, it is a Bb (notated right), so it's mislabelled.
Grant Green is my go-to "Jazz Reset" button.
With the bar being raised so high today in all things jazz guitar, listening to Grant Green helps me stay centered and reminds me of characteristics that I don't want to lose in my playing.
Sometimes it's OK to take a break from reinventing the wheel!
Thanks for posting!
