NIGHT AND DAY Tritonic Reharmonization 

 

Night and Day follows an A A B form, which can also be broken down into an A B A B C B form, with the B section being the second half of each of the larger sections in the A A B format. In the reharm, as in the original, this sub-section remains the same throughout. I will use the A A B rehearsal letter format, using double bar lines to delineate the sub-section. I use the standard key of C major for the melody of this reharm. 

Two major changes occur in the melody. In the B section, in bars two and six, the G natural in the G, F, Eb passage is changed to a Gb. The sub-section of the B section uses the same melody as the A sections, instead of the variation that occurs in the original chart.

The first half of the A sections use the tritonic grouping of C, Ab and E, and the first half of the B section uses the Eb, B, G grouping. The sub-sections use the A, F, Db groupings. There are a few extended turnarounds for modulation purposes, and a major-seven-sharp-five chord before the bridge. Here are my changes:

A    C   Eb7   |   Ab   B7   |   E   G7   |   C   Eb7   |   Ab   |   D-7   G7   |   C   D-7   |   Db-7   C7   ||
||   B-7   E7   |   A   C7   |   F   Ab7   |   Db   E7   |   A   C7   |   F   Eb7   |   Ab   |   D-7   G7   ||

A    C   Eb7   |   Ab   B7   |   E   G7   |   C   Eb7   |   Ab   |   D-7   G7   |   C   D-7   |   Db-7   C7   ||
||   B-7   E7   |   A   C7   |   F   Ab7   |   Db   E7   |   A   C7   |   F   F#7b9   |   Bmaj7#5   |   F-7   Bb7   ||

B    Eb   F#7   |   B   D7   |   G   Bb7   |   Eb   C7b9   |   F-7   Bb7   |   Eb   D7b9   |   G   Bb7   |   Eb   F#7b9   ||
||   B-7   E7   |   A   C7   |   F   Ab7   |   Db   E7   |   A   C7   |   F   Eb7   |   Ab   |   D-7   G7   ||

The fine is on bar fifteen of the B section, which is bar seven of the sub-section. Have fun!  [ top ]
