This is a good introduction to the music of Ron McClure. Ron writes with a rich harmonic vocabulary and spins out great interesting melodies over sometimes complex harmonies. Ron has supplied chord voicings in the piano part to help clarify his harmonic intentions.
Ebmaj7#4#5 may be unfamiliar to many, but there are 4 measures to become accustomed to it. The other chords are not as complex and create an interesting 24-bar repeating structure which is followed by an 8 measure solo section to set up one of the backgrounds or the next soloist.
