Example6 Michael Brecker short III-VI-II-V-I in C
This short III-VI- II-V- I line in C from the legendary tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker, begins with two four-note motifs implying B7 and Em7. Bar 2 gets
pretty ‘out’ as Brecker drifts into the Whole-Tone scale,
using Eb Whole-Tone over the Dm7 which becomes G Whole Tone on the G7, ending up with a descending two-note chromatic figure and finally resolving to C6 on beat 3 of bar 4.
