This is a cool riff for an E∆7 chord emphasizing the 13, the #11, and the 9. It works for creating a lydian type vibe or really in any situation where you can get away with the #11. Great for a modal type situation like in Chick Corea’s tune Windows during the E∆7#11 vamp in bars 17-24… but can also be tagged on as a very colorful resolution to wrap up a ii V I.
