This is a really beautiful sound. You might want to listen to Kurt Rosenwinkel on
East Coast Love Affair at 7:32 on the great CD East Coast Love Affair on Fresh
Sound/New Talent records. He does something very similar.

Check out John Scofield on Whip the Mule @ 1:36. Scofield has played this pattern
on other recordings as well but Whip the Mule is from Hand Jive which should be in

Wes Montgomery was fond of using diminished chords as approaches to other


chords or just up or down the diminished scale specifically Missile Blues @ 4:56 or any
of his improvised chordal solos . These diminished chords work well as an approach to
the turnaround in a 12 bar blues.
