The authorization code is the first word on Page 198 of the Fourth Edition of the LCCTO.

An open letter from Alice Russell. June 21, 2011, Brookline, Massachusetts. 1. DO NOT make insulting, mean spirited remarks about anyone or their work; there are a plethora of sites where you can rant unfettered. If you attack someone personally, your comments will be removed. You can post it, but I'm not paying for it. Go elsewhere, and let those artists who are actually interested in discussion and learning have the floor. 2. There will be NO posting of or links to copyrighted material without permission of the copyright owner. That's the law. And if you respect the work of people who make meaningful contributions, you should have no problem following this policy. 3. I appreciate many of the postings from so many of you. Please don't feel you have to spend your time "defending" the LCC to those who come here with the express purpose of disproving it. George worked for decades to disprove it himself; if you know his music, there's no question that it has gravity. And a final word: George was famous for his refusal to lower his standards in all areas of his life, no matter the cost. He twice refused concerts of his music at Lincoln Center Jazz because of their early position on what was authentically jazz. So save any speculation about the level of him as an artist and a man. The quotes on our websites were not written by George; they were written by critics/writers/scholars/fans over many years. Sincerely, Alice

I love the Joe Henderson Double Rainbow CD but I found myself listening to Triste over and over. They play some really nice changes! First of all they do it in G. Is that the original key? The intro vamp is like F9/G, (Eb Lydian PMGIII MajorIIIB), to a Cmaj9#11/G, ( C Lydian PMG V MajorVB).
It’s fun to play on guitar if you have a bass player but you can get right to the point on piano. Those chords are downright beguiling.

Please forgive a newbies question (I still haven't read all of the LCCTO and am still in shock) but can all the Lydian chords be expressed as slash chords?

Look at the section on Principal Chords starting around page 23. Check out all the Principal Chordmodes for each modal genre. I think the answer to your question is , yes. You should sit at a piano and play through all those chords.

I see on wikipedia that:

"Some chords may not otherwise be notated, such as Ab/A (Latarski 1991, p. 25). Thus, a slash chord may also indicate the chord form or shape and an additional bass note."

With no voices to the contrary I'll take that as a yes then.

Apologies for hijacking your thread - it is an interesting change, must listen to the album sometime.

Those chord changes remind me of something that Joe Satriani does a lot, which he has called "pitch axis theory". Over one bass note (8th note pulse, for example), various modes, and yes, chordmodes, are sounded in succession, one per measure. Very cool sound.

Not to free-associate but, did you know Satriani studied with jazz great Lennie Tristano? Personally I have found Joe’s compositions to be more interesting than his soloing. This is mainly based on seeing him live years ago. He would launch into this amazing piece and then when the blowing section came it was, ‘Here’s another one(or two) chord jam’.
