Tom Jobim was a fan and student of Frederick Chopin's music and loosely based "Insensitez" on Frederic Chopin's Prelude No. 4.  I have heard jazz musicians create a medley of the two.  Possibly a search for studies on Prelude No. 4 or the comparison of the two would be most helpful.

Ted's view of the 'falling 3 notes' extended beyond Jobim.  We once reminisced about the "magical" moves in Laura and Ruby.  Ted said something like "Yea, that half-step triad thing was really important to composers in the 40's on tunes like Laura, and Stella, and Ruby . . .  "

I had seen it on piano, being a very poor jazz piano player, and watching the simple triads move down.  I Never moved the idea beyond that till he mentioned it as a composing device. And of course Nick is spot on.

By the way, if you're not on the list, you're not getting notified of updates being done on some of the older pages.  Cleaned up, or whatever the posted page might have needed.  They're going on now.  What list you ask?
