CHORD EXAMPLE 9
This example shows two short but important snippets from the circle of 4ths: first, the IIm V I progression in bars 1-3; secondly, the VI IIm V I progression in bars 5-7. These progressions are very common in jazz. Despite being only a few short links in the chain you should still be hearing the circle of 4ths. One final point, note the B7 in bars 15-16 - this is considered as V/ V, the dominant of the dominant!
