Good stuff Jerry, although I would add two things:

It is extremely rare to see a IIIm7 (b9) outside of a modal context, so it may be more accurate to call that an incomplete voicing of what is most...

Yeah but the "just naming the key" isn't supposed to tell you the relationships of everything in it. Naming the key only tells you what pitch your tonal center is, and whether or not its associated...

That E - G - A - C progression is an example of mode mixture. The two non diatonic chords are from E Aeolian.

Yeah that's a textbook modal vamp, assuming we have no other context. The B is the 5th of Em.

Hearing it as two different tonics is a valid improvisational strategy though.

Jerry,

Augmented chords are tricky, because the lack of a perfect fifth can make establishing a tonal center difficult. This is why we see so little music in Locrian; it is very difficult to not...

All of the "b-something" chords are USUALLY sub-dominant.

You should do it so you can learn to audiate, hearing the music by only looking at the paper. Then you can be composing away from an instrument.

Non-diatonic chords don't have anything to do with Key analysis. It's all about resolution and tonic pitches.

Yeah Jerry, what Duane said.

I don't see it as ambiguous at all, the progression is functional in Bb major, and therefore it isn't modal.
