You could reference that Bbm7 with and E dorian/minor ( half step slide). You can also chromaticize the basic mode to make it more interesting. Watch my jazz videos to see how a hacker like me can make a major pent. not sound like a major pent.
> Kent, the tune is a textbook example of modal jazz in the Miles Davis So What tradition. It's not about adding chromaticism, in the view of those in this style, the chromatic tones take away from the modal feel and represent the old fashioned approach. These tunes represent a move away from bebop into a newer, cooler, less frenetic approach.
