Vlog: Re-harmonizing Standards – Modern Jazz Progressions and Jazz Chord Sounds

A few days ago I uploaded a Chord Melody Reharmonization of Night and Day. In this video I will go over the arrangement and some of the more unusual jazz guitar chords that I have used. Re-harmonizing jazz standards is fun and also a great way to add a personal touch to your interpretation of the song.

In my reharmonization I am using some more rich versions of the original chords and also in other places completely changing the harmony, using new less functional jazz progressions and colors.

Night and Day – Backing Track – Playalong – Samba – 185 bpm

Here’s the backing track for Night and Day! One of my favourite Cole Porter pieces jam on. The progression has it all: bVImaj7, a nice variation on the II V I, #IVm7b5, IVm. You name it, it’s in there!

As I mentioned in the solo it also works great as a samba like I am playing it here.
