I am looking for tips to make a pop melody sound jazzy. Say I am playing the melody line for a modern pop or rock song, how can I make it jazz? Let's use Bruce Springsteen's Dancing In The Dark as an example:
That is some of the basic melody (ignore the tempo marker as it's wrong). How could you jazz up this melody? The basic chord, on the album, is a C chord.
I am wondering - is it through chord substitutions that the song becomes jazz sounding or can you make it sound more jazz by doing something with the melody?
