It is confusing for sure. But strangely enough David Amram who is
perhaps a bit more technically sophisticated than Bob Z. seems to
have had a similar revelation.
There's a name I haven't seen for a while! We used to get together any time
I was in New York or he was in Toronto. The world's greatest interview..put
a mike in front of him and ask him how he is, and then come back in a half
hour to change the tape. He moved out of New York, his agent died, his
Toronto rep got out of the business and I lost contact with him.
He was jamming with some jazz musicians as the post-bop period was
under way. He was not a sophisticated pianist and a guy who's name
eludes me suggested that a way to voice more sophisticated chords
without having a great deal of technique was to play a given chord
(G7) and then double the third and the seventh
degree of the chord again in the other hand. Neat trick, but I have
no idea what this has to do with the triplet issue...just a thought.
