    Thanks for posting.
    In measures 1, 2, & 4 of the B section and bar 3 of the final A, you can make the overlapping chords more readable by using S and N in the editor (small/normal).
    Remember, each N or S applies to all subsequent chords in the chart. When you use S to make a couple of adjacent chords fit better, please use N on the next chord to reset the rest of the chart.

    Please only use the Small font setting to make only the overlapping chords more readable.

    mhoover,

    Correct me if I'm wrong. It looks like your version comes from the fake book 1000 Songs, Volume One or a spinoff from that. raymb1's version looks like it's a variation of the version in Hal Leonard's Real Jazz Book.

    The main difference is that yours shows the B section starting on a IIm7 in Eb, whereas the Hal Leonard version has it modulating to Ab for half a measure. I don't know which one conforms to the original sheet music.

    raymb1's version differs slightly from the Hal Leonard version, which is below:

    The correct chords depends on whose version you listen to. Bill Evans plays an Ab7 for the first bar of the B section, Red Garland plays Fm7 - F#dim.

    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.

    The tune is not in my repertoire, so I haven't made any choices. I generally love Bill's changes, to everything.

    Cheers,
