Jazz & R&R Horns, Session 29

In Session 29 we review Augmented, Diminished, & Minor 6 chords and how to replace them with more definitive, II  V  I chords.

Your chord changes are the foundation of your arrangement and you want to make sure they are right, or what you want.  And if you want to use a diminished or augmented chord, and it sounds good to you, do it, but know your options. 

There are exceptions to every rule (especially in music) and you'll find diminished and Minor 6 chords in some Latin music that is part of that style.  Also, you'll find Augmented chords in a line progression like, C  C+  C6  that work fine.
