Bebop Dorian, Major and Melodic Minor scales

Bebop scales contain an extra chromatic passing note creating an 8 note scale.

Why is this?

In the example below you will see how the added chromatic passing note makes the scale rhythmically logical.

1 3 5 7th notes of the chord [C E G B flat] are all “On” the beat whereas the “non chord tones” D F A B natural are played “Off” the beat.
