There are no wrong notes in Jazz? Diminished Chord Resolution Patterns – Theory and Practice on Jazz Blues

I tried my best to explain why Miles Davis, Art Tatum and Bill Evans said there are no wrong notes in Jazz.




There’s no such thing as a wrong note. - Art Tatum

There are no wrong notes in jazz: only notes in the wrong places. - Miles Davis

It's not the note you play that's the wrong note - it's the note you play afterwards that makes it right or wrong. - Miles Davis

There are no wrong notes; some are just more right than others. - Thelonius Monk

“Do not fear mistakes. There are none. - Miles Davis

"There are no wrong notes, only wrong resolutions" "I think of all harmony as an expansion and a return to the tonic." - Bill Evans
