    Which ever is closest to a I7 tritone substitution I mentioned... bV(7) it seems.

    Yes. The legendary tritone sub is a flat-five chord. Therefore, you want to write bV7 or bV(7).
    - - usually, if the chord is just a dominant7 type you don't need to put the 7 in parenthesis. I did it to avoid the ambiguity of some of the other "options" posted above. V7 is the basic notation of a dominant seven-type chord.

    Also the VIIb7 is more likely a bVIImaj7 or bVII/6 since the #V isn't a scale tone or harmonic tone.

    This is interesting: http://xenharmonic.wikispaces.com/isoharmonic+chords

    I think isoharmonic chords would sound awesome in trumpet sections, though Iwas thinking more of a head tune type chord progression.
