In this video I improvise over George Benson’s version of Jose Feliciano’s tune ‘ Affirmation’ in B minor.
See the attached transcription sheet, which has the details of all the substitutions and chord impositions I use to navigate the original chord chart. I also play an improvised rubato intro, which is a small exploration of the main harmonic theme of the A section – Emi9 to Bmi9, and a nod to the main melodic theme in some points.
If anyone is interested in some approaches to the specific harmonic techniques or imposed chords please message me!
