Jazz Harmony by James Knapp
Jazz Harmony takes a unique approach to the subject.
It is not a collection of licks or styles. It is, rather, an exploration of the principles of harmony as revealed through the practice of jazz music.
Jazz Harmony is very specific in the area of chord construction and offers, for example, reasons behind the difference between a "+11" versus a "-5." Also covered is the dynamic relationship of one chord to another and how its harmonic environment influences the scale of a chord.
Harmonic resolution – an
area rarely mentioned – is
thoroughly covered, along with phrases, cadences and non-harmonic
