good chord formula/ name book  
i have been looking for some time for a chord book. the ones i find seem to go into 9th and 13th etc. but leave off there. is there a book that shows many of the chords that are encountered? i find myself stumped when i don't know the notes for  a particular chord, or equally when transcribing i know the chord but not the name of it.  
There are 11 comments, leave a comment.
why not figure out 9th and 13th chords based on theory and memorize their locations,  rather than using some book?
hve you looked at phil degreg's book? it's helped me alot...
if you're having trouble with complicated chord progressions, try ralph patt's vanilla book:

i've tried to explain jazz chords on my website - you never know, it might make sense:
