I’ve tried to answer a question about voicings in Jazz. I was not sure if it was concerning a 4 part or unlimited part voicing.
Now I’ve seen that I’ve overlooked in the title of the question the term shell voicing. I haven’t heard this term before and looking for clearing I couldn’t find an explanation in wiki. I suppose it has to do with the fact that in a sequence of ii-V7 or in a fifth-fall progression the 3rd e.g. Dm (=F) becomes the 7th of the next chord G7 and and the 7th of Dm (C) is leading half step down to 3rd of G(=B). Are these (often) chromatically leading tones called shell voicings? Or what did I miss?
