Can someone give me some help with voicing the following progression? It's for Jobim's "Wave". GM7; Gm6; F#13; F#7#5; B9sus; B7b9; E9sus; E9. Thanks.

Hi,
Well as they say, give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime.

It depends on whether you're playing Yamaha os the CW190...

Just kidding. This should sound just fine on the CW 190!

Second four bars of the head:

Gmaj7: F#-B-D-(G)
Gm6: E-Bb-D-(G)
F#13: Eb-E-Bb-(F#)
F#7#5: D-E-Bb-(F#)
B9sus: B-E-A-C#
B7b9: C-F#-B-D# then A-Eb-Ab-C
E9sus: E-A-D-F#
E9: E-G#-D-F#

...somewhat close voicings (no interval larger than a tritone). Nothing Earth shattering but they should work.

Thanks Haywood. The little Yamaha left the house today, sadly, to a new home. I'll have to get by with the Walter.

I'll work on these tonight.

GM7 - If you are asking for a G Maj7 - it should read
G-B-D-F# for a close voicing in root position.
A tasty way to play F#13 in the left hand try E-A#-D# then slide your thumb down a half step and get E-A#-D which gets you a F##5. Keep going in the next bar:
B9-tryD#-A C# and then slide your thumb down a half step and get B(b9) D#-A-C. For E9 you already have the 9 in the melody so an E7 in will work E-G#-B-D.

Rob,

I just bought your book just out of blind faith. Your postings have always been helpful in the past and the price of the book seemed very reasonable. Since I don't have the book in hand, can you tell me how I should incorporate it into my studies. I'm a beginner of 1 YR. I still don't feel close to having the facility to play jazz...any suggestions on how to use your book, other than just reading it cover to cover.

Hi,
Thanks for picking up my material. Which book did you get, the Jazz Piano Voicings pub by Hal Leonard? If you got that one, there are specific instructions in that book under "How to use this book" which will be important. Email me if you wish.
