Does anyone has any comments on this...
Well maybe I should explain myself first.....

To take a Vamp, for this case its Cm. Then superimpose little fragments of the A major tonality.

For ex. 1 2 3 5 of A major (Any inversion allowed)
1 3 5 M7 of A. ( % )

Etc.....

Well, thats a way of playing that I like alot,
And here is a few of my favourites...

Cm with F# Major Intentions.

Cm with B Major intentions in relation to the D halftone-wholetone scale/C diminished.

And finally Cm with A Major intentions. This one is by the way frequently used by Jonh Scofield as well...

Hope to hear and get some other superimposing ideas from you....

Bjorn...

Let me see if I understand you - so over C minor (7)

C Eb G (Bb)

One would superpose A major (7)

A C# E

One could equally, presumably superimpose A minor, or Eb minor by the same token.

C major with F# intentions gives you Stravinsky's Petroushka chord, which was a favourite with Dave Brubeck...

These sorts of things relate to the kinds of bitonal things I've mentioned before - e.g. playing Gaint steps changes on static chords, and so on.

I think Brad Meldhau has an interestingly wayward sense of harmony that involves superimposing all sorts of funny things.
