I'm glad you found my Coltrane article of interest, throckmorten. Thanks for posting the link — it’s generated a fair bit of interest, even in the short number of hours since you made the post.

You may be interested in some other analyses and articles at my site — here are a few URLs, with brief descriptions:

Just Friends -- Describes Just Friends’ harmonic structure, and its use of sequence, mode change, modulation, substitute chords, secondary dominants and pivot chords.

Common-tone Modulation -- Discusses the different types of modulation used in classical, jazz, Romantic and Impressionist music.

Figured Bass and Harmony & Voice Leading -- for those with an interest in classical harmony.

Long-Distance Private Lessons in Jazz & Classical Harmony -- for those interested in furthering their musical development.


DownBeat magazine will be publishing another of my analyses – this one on some of Danny Grissett’s marvellous improvisational techniques – in its April issue. I hope to have an expanded version of the same article at my site by mid to late March. If you, or any other forum members, would like me to notify you when it's up, just drop me a line at michael@thinkingmusic.ca.

Thanks again for your interest, throckmorten [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

All the best,
