I am introducing this song into my repertoire. It's not one of the most well-know Wayne Shorter compositions, but it's an interesting one and also one that's nice to play.

I have found a transcription on the Internet, but some of the chords in the bridge section seem to be wrong, at least t my ear. That transcription includes these chords in the bridge (1 bar each):

Fm7 | Ebmaj7/A | Bbm7 | Gbmaj7 | Eb7#9 | Abm7 | Dm7b5 | G13 |

The second and fourth chords in the sequence don't sound right to me. Any idea what the actual chords might be? The Gbmaj7 sounds to me more like a Gbmaj7#4...

Thanks for all the input.

Best

After repeated listening this morning, this is what I think I am hearing:

Fm7 | A7#11 | Bbm7 | Gb7#11 | Eb7#9 | Abm7 | Dm7b5 | G7 |

I think I am getting closer.

This version by Enrico Pieranunzi is brilliant:

... although I prefer to play the song in 3/4, as in the original version by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
