I've come across an exercise in the Jazzology "jazz theory" book, where the chord should be identified, given the notes below:
I identified it as a B7#5#9, but the answer was B7#9b13. I'm guessing that to be a #5 the g should strictly be a double sharp f. That is a quite cumbersome notation though. My question is if I'm correct in my reasoning. I'm also interested in if the b13 is the interpretation the venerable people of this SE would make. I understand that there are voicings without the fifth, but I find it a bit strange to leave it out in an exercise.
Also, what are the implications regarding the (mis)interpretation as a #5? If it's interpreted as a #5, that would mean that the g sharp (6th) is present, while if it's a b13, f sharp (5th) is there instead. Which should have implications regarding which scales to choose to play over it.
I haven't played the chord and tried the different added tones to see what sounds good, I'm interested in understanding the exercise fully.
