Raf, if you're referring to the version on YouTube, I agree, it's beautiful. Desmond plays it in a standard key, so I just downloaded the BIAB version of the Tune, learned the head, then spent some time copying Desmond's licks.... theyre relatively easy to pick up............. when played in this style, this tune is a real chick magnet!!

Just wanted to say that I really love this song. I transcribed version from the "summertime" album, and it wasn't that hard. I want to transcribe the Monterey jazz 1975 version (the youtube version) next.

Cheers,

I think Desmond played it in C and just used the standard changes. Something like this. You can add b9 to quite a few of the dominant chords.

| C6 | A-7 | D-7 | G7 |
| C6 | G-7 C7 | FMaj7 | Bb9 |
| AMaj7 | F#-7 | B-7 | E7 |
| A-7 | D7 | D-7 | G7#5 |
| CMaj7 | A-7 | D-7 | G7 |
| CMaj7 | C7#5 | FMaj7 | E7 |
| A-7 | B7 | E-7 | A7 |
| D-7 | G7 | Bb7#11 | A7 /G |
| F#-7b5 | F-7 | E-7 | A7 |
| D-7 | G7 | C6 | C6 |
