Could somebody explain what is meant by an AABA jazz form?
It means one chord progression (A) is played twice, then a bridge (B) then the A is repeated a last time.
Thank you sir.
This is the common form for rhythm changes, by the way.
Typically - it is 8 bar sections, played 4 times, making up a total of 32 - although not always.
And quite often, you will have a "second time bar" - so the second A section will have a slightly different ending to lead you into the bridge.
