Chord Progressions suggestions

Postby choirnerd99 » Tue Oct 11, 2011 9:10 pm

Hey everyone!!


I was just wondering if anyone had some good jazz chord progressions. I am working on some background music for a radio production class, and I get to make up all the music if I want. So being the ACA nerd I am I would like to add some nice easy vocal jazz, or just any good progression in the background. Then when I do some drops for the class I would like to have some killer high jazz chords that ring and will just make people love vocal jazz and ACA music for life!

So if you could let me know I would be very grateful!

Keep singing!!

And Sonos getting booted this week on the Sing Off was CRAP!! they are awesome and should of came close to winning it, or taking the whole cake!

K bye

for starters

look up 'rhythm changes' which encompasses many jazz tunes in some form or another
look up 'major blues' or 'minor blues' changes which is another big chunk.

if you're up for a challenge look at the changes for john coltrane's 'giant steps'

many jazz tunes take already existing pop tunes chord progressions, make slight alterations and do different stuff over them. listen to charlie parker's 'confirmation'

and then the 1947 recording of "twilight time" which was subsequently remade into a hit in later years by the Platters.

they are the same chord progression.
