    One other thing: most tunes have "standard" changes that are either the composer's original changes or those in the fake books. Often I and other posters submit chord charts with non-standard changes...

    You're welcome. I regularly play for retirees who enjoy many now-neglected songs of the 40s and 50s. I suggest that you check out the chord charts that I have posted on this forum for such material.

    We've been through this many times. I made this request years ago! I too like to go through multiple styles at the same tempo for each tune. Great minds think alike.

    This is one of my favorite songs. I play the Volume One changes at the beginning of the bridge; the Ab7 sounds jarring to me. That said, the several Bill Evans versions are sublime.
