This post in our Jazz Workouts series is our Dominant 7(#11) Chord Workout.  This will help you practice your 7(#11) chords in all 12 keys.  The exercise goes through the Circle of 4ths (C-F-Bb-Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-B-E-A-D-G) and each chord is played for 8 bars before switching to the next. These chords can be tricky to improvise over so it is incredibly helpful to practice these chords isolated to get the sounds in your ears and onto your instrument.  Use the chord charts as a guide and the play-along to practice!
