I am trying to teach myself jazz and have alot of Lee Evans instruction books.  I am stuck on his interpretation of a tetrachord.  He refers to lower jazz tetrachord in C major as A - C - D -Eflat.  The Upper Jazz Tetrachord is E natural - G - A - B flat.  Tetrachords in classical music are whole, whole, half step configuration.  Can anyone enlighten me on the formation of a Jazz tetrachord.  Your reply would be much appreciated. 

Does anyone know of any jazz forums that I could join.  Need alot of help as I am self taught.

I strongly recommend you "the jazz piano book" from Mark Levine.

I agree.
Have a look at this:
