Washing up last night I caught Scritti Politti's Perfect Way played on Radio 2, which I hadn't heard for years and thoroughly enjoyed. Got me thinking, I vaguely remember reading a magazine interview with Green from the band saying that he deliberately avoided using II V I cadences. But seems that playing the piano my hands seem to fall into that sort of progression. (II V13 I, etc). Anyone suggest some alternative progressions that are as satisfying as II V I without actually being II V I. This isn't just for arranging, it'd get used to connect verses when I'm playing piano in church, to avoid the gap you get if you just stop playing between verses.
