Description The min7b5 chord (known in traditional harmony as the "half diminished" chord) is a poignant harmony and is used extensively in LOCRIAN DREAMS. Most typically this chord appears as a "ii" chord in minor and as an important element in the ii7b5 - V(alt) - i chord progression. In this piece it is used as a "stand alone" harmony in conjunction with mi7, 7, and ma7 chords thus lending itself to easier exploration when improvising. The funk ballad style has an even 16th note subdivision and has been a staple of funk and pop jazz since the 1980ís.
