Interesting how simple Jazz can really be, since chords base in one simple pattern, I-ii-iii-IV-V-vi-ob(dim)/obb(half dim) considering a major scale. Since, E.G C6 = Amin7 etc. My question, What other chords can be used in order to create interesting sound(s) in the left hand except e.g (left Hand close position and drop voicing) Cmaj, moving to Fmaj, Dmin, G7 and Cmaj / or Quartal voicing in a I, IV, ii, V, I /or iii, vi, ii, V, I (as sub) progression, when improvising or soloing? Saying Smooth Jazz.
