L’Anatole

In Chords, Jazz, Theorie on February 3, 2010 at 4:54 pm

L’anatole est une forme harmonique (suite d’accords) très présente dans la musique jazz.

Voici sa structure de base (exemple en Do Majeur C) :

C Am Dm G7

soit le premier degré, le 6ème degré, le deuxième degré et le cinquième degré de la gamme majeur..

Il est important de bien maitriser l’anatole car c’est une suite d’accords que vous rencontrerez dans de nombreux thèmes musicaux. La plupart des chansons de Charles Trénet (Que reste-il de nos amours, le piano de la plage, la mer, nationale 7, …) sont construites sur ce principe. Les thèmes de Jazz des années 20-30 tels que Ain’t misbehavin, Blue Moon, Blue Room,Honeysuckle Rose, … sont également bâtis sur l’anatole.

Voyons maintenant quelles variations sont possibles:

Exemples en Do majeur

C

Am Dm G7
Em A7 Dm G7
Em A7 Ab7 G7
C A7 Ab7 G7
Em Eb7 Dm

Db7

etc …

Ces substitutions d’accords doivent toujours tenir compte de la mélodie à laquelle elles s’appliquent et ne constituent en aucun cas une règle absolue. Fiez vous à votre oreille.

Pour terminer voici deux utilisations typiques de l’anatole.
