Watch the ii-V-I-vi Progression online guitar lesson by John Stowell from Modern Jazz Progressions

While still retaining the key centers, this cadence is substantially different, with the introduction of the melodic minor, lydian major, tensions/embellishments over the V chord and reharmonization of the VI chord as dominant.

Note the reference to triad substitutions over the I and V chords.

As more tensions and embellishments are added, pay attention to voice leading and the top note of each chord, especially if you're accompanying a soloist.

Some of the sounds in this version may sound dissonant and unfamiliar to you, but they have been a part of the jazz vocabulary since the bebop era.
