B Section Harmony
In this lesson we examine the harmony of the B section which is also known as the bridge. In the previous lesson we explored the A section of the tune which takes us to bar 16 in the form.
One interesting aspect of this tune is that the harmony remains consistent between the different sections and in fact the whole tune contains very similar chord progressions.
Often when playing jazz standards, we find that the B section contrasts to the A sections and oftentimes we find a modulation where we modulate to a new key for the B section, but that doesn’t happen in the tune ‘The Nearness Of You’.
