Does anyone know about single note accompaniment? I remembering watching Lee Morgan play I Remember Clifford with the Jazz Messengers and Benny Golson on sax was just playing one note to compliment him. I think he was just playing the essential note to let the listener tune in to the chord changes going on behind Lee. You can watch on youtube. Also watch them play A Night in Tunisia its awesome.

For single note accompaniment you should stick with chord tones (root, third, fifth and seventh) when starting out, then move on to extensions (ninth, eleventh, thirteenth).  As you change chords you should 'voice lead' to the nearest chord tone.

For example, in a ii-V-I in the key of C.

Actual Notes
Chord Tones
F-F-E
Third-Seventh-Third
C-B-B
Seventh-Third-Seventh
A-G-G
Fifth-Root-Fifth
D-D-C
Root-Fifth-Root

Then add some extensions.  Some examples.

Actual Notes
Chord Tones
E-D#-D
Ninth-Sharp Fifth-Ninth
D-D#-E
Root-Sharp Fifth-Third

If your playing in a duo, you may want to stick with just chord tones and keep things simple.  If your playing in a group, you can afford to add extensions since you have other comping instruments (piano, bass, guitar) to help outline the chord progression.

Hope this helps.
