Example3 Riff-based single line repetition
Montgomery was a master of superimposition. In this example he juxtaposes a hip major 7th/9th arpeggio based line against a selection of IIm7-V7 cadences,
Bbmajor beginning with against Gm and continuing with this relationship of
Ebmajor minor 3rd above, so this gives against Cm, D against B, C against A and so on. The strategic hammer-ons not only improve the musical flow, they also assist with the technical articulation.
