Fall (Wayne Shorter)

Featured on the Nefertiti album is the gorgeous ballad Fall, a tune by Wayne Shorter.

It has all the harmonic intricacies of his music and -as much as I know- should be approached in a vertical way. There is some V-I going on, but, since Shorter reharmonizes every chord, the horizontal movement is obscured. Resulting in a more modal and more contemporary sound.

In this version, I use the style I created for John Coltranes tune "Wise". It fits Fall extremely well, I think. You'll find the style in the Modal Pack 1.

As always, you can download the tune HERE. If you load it and you don't have the appropriate Jazzstylezz style, it will say "style missing". But you can always substitute it with any other style of your liking.

Dig it.
