Example9 Speedy double-time line in Eb and C
Benson moves up an Ebmaj7 arpeggio and slides up to the 9th (F) on the Ebmaj7 chord. He then descends chromatically around an Ebmaj7 arpeggio and outlines C7b9 on beat 4 over the C7#5. He outlines the Fm7 chord then suggests C7, and over the Bb7 plays a short II-V- I outlining Fm7 and Bb9 resolving to Eb major pentatonic. Over the G13 he throws in a descending Dm pentatonic with 9th (E) added, suggesting Dm7 and G7, resolving to C and moving into an intervallic idea around Em pentatonic. We finish with a Cmaj9 arpeggio with a closing triplet flurry featuring a very ‘outside’ D#.
