I have been enjoying a wonderful scale recently, but I am unable to find its ‘proper name’ anywhere.
It’s essentially a minor pentatonic with a major 3rd in place of the 4th
1 - b3 - 3 - 5 - b7
e.g. C Eb E G Bb
My question is simple: what is this scale called?
EDIT - for clarity, none of these are passing notes and the absence of the 4th is critical to the tonality. There’s as distinct a flavour to the sequence as a modal scale, hence my naming curiosity.
