There's been a great thread going on at the All About Jazz site about the Maj 7 flat 5 chord. I found this tune of mine today that uses that chord for its main harmonic identity. The chord is D7-5. I voiced it as D G# C# F#.
It's a pretty open-ended chord to play over. Really, it can go almost anywhere. Well, here it is anyway.
