I am trying to figure out when and if possible how extended tertian sonorities (especially "eleventh" and "thirteenth" chords) became standard ingredients in jazz harmony without doing an extensive corpus study. (I love jazz, but I am not a jazz musician and know very little about early jazz in particular.) My question is relevant for a paper I am working on about Schoenberg's Von Heute auf Morgen (so it's not directly jazz related).
If any of you have ideas about this or suggestions of articles/books that might be helpful to me I would very much appreciate it. The standard jazz history books I am familiar with treat jazz harmony and theory only in a cursory fashion.
Thanks so much!
