B 5 - - - 4 - - - 3
G 5 - - - 4 - - - 3
D 3 - - - 3 - - - 1

Cool, do you like that E on the second string on Dm7b5? That's one note on the m7b5 chord, the natural 9, that a lot of cats like but I just couldn't get into for some reason. I think it's a sound that should be explored more to find different ways to integrate it into a modern jazz sound.

It just gives more colour, and it's a lot less "open" sounding, not that there's anything wrong with that. Just depends on what you're going for!
