What Is Targeting?

This Charlie Parker lick is a great example of targeting. He plays around a C major triad in the way described above:
This is another great example. Here an F major triad, an E minor triad and a D minor triad are targeted before it settles into a G augmented arpeggio which leads to the C major seventh chord:
This idea can be continued. The lick we get can be played over a Cmaj7 or a Dm7:
What Is Enclosure?
Sometimes both neighbor tones - a scale step above and a half step below - are used. Then we get what is commonly referred to as an enclosure.
