Analysis for Jerry Gray and Eddie de Lange, "A String of Pearls"
m. 11: i(6/5)
M.12:i (6/5) II7 flat ii7
M. 13: vi
harmonically this excerpt is not exactly simple but functionally it is very important. It leads us back from a previous section to the close of the piece. Most of these chords shares a common tone between them, or move apart in no bigger motion than a second allowing for the composers so bend the rules of resolution.
The piece ends with motion from an E chord to a B to a C. the interesting thing about these final two chords is that every note of the B chords resolves up to the C and all no more than a second creating a very interesting, almost incomplete sound.
