In The Jazz Piano Book
(1989), Mark Levine gives an example of a three-part melody arrangement: https://ibb.co/PQQhySv
This texture sounds more interesting than combining the usual LH closed chords with a melody, but it also gets boring when repeated.
However, even before the book was published, there were such phenomena as special guitar strumming techniques such as in guitarists Stanley Jordan
or Tuck Andress
from Tuck & Patti
, which found expression in Keith Jarrett's revolutionary intro to All The Things You Are
The three-voice texture has a specific property: each voice carries a third of the overall sound; which allows you to manipulate them and greatly diversify the sound.
Different combinations of voices have different sounds: the constant simultaneous attack of three voices on the first beat has the strongest accent; and long static sounds create the effect of hitting a bell with a hammer, which is not very desirable , for example in ballads. In addition, bass always starts from the root, and always from the first or also from the third beat.
Mark Levine shows a scheme that can be varied ;in bass, use the root and 5th first, but you can use also other chord notes. https://ibb.co/g64xhZShttps://yadi.sk/d/rf-xfMXIEdtYoA
The second version is modeled on K. Jarrett.
