Moon Trane Goon

Well, here's a chart you don't see every day. Think Larry Young on organ, Woody Shaw on trpt, Joe Henderson on sax and Elvin Jones on drums. This is a great chart.

Here's an idea; when blowing over Maj7+11 chords play a II/V pattern starting with the root of the two chord set a minor 3rd below the root of the chart chord, the Maj7+11. For example, over D Maj#11 play Bmin/E7. The sound is forward-moving and it's easier to blow longer lines this way.
