Here we see how Django might deal with the bV Half-di­min­ished fall­ing chro­matic pro­gres­sion (bV m7b5-IVm-IIIm-biii dim), some­times re­ferred to as the ‘Red Gar­land changes’ that you find in the har­mony to stan­dards such as Night And Day. Chro­matic ideas nestle side by side with tri­adic and 7th arpeg­gio ideas, il­lus­trat­ing just how in­te­grated Rein­hardt’s vo­cab­u­lary was and how im­me­di­ate his ideas could be in a purely im­pro­vi­sa­tional con­text.
