    I was transcribing this song's as performed by the Bill Evans trio ( on Explorations) melody and chords today and came up with this:

    Dm // Bb/D (Dm#5) // Dm6 // D7b9
    Gm7 // C7b9 // Fmaj7 // Bbmaj7
    Em7b5 // A7b9// Dm7 // Em7b5 A7alt.

    Is this a reasonably correct take on the changes?

    Pretty nifty tune... pretty much a minor blues ...

    i use different changes when i play it. i'm doing it on my senior recital in april, and i got the changes out of the real book. here's what that book says:

    Dm/Dm(b6)/Dm6/D7(b9)
    Gm-Gm(b6)/Gm6-A7(b13)/Dmaj7/Fmaj7
    Bbmaj7/A7/Dm-F7/BbMaj-A7

    really cool tune. Miles recorded it on "Birth of the Cool" too. it's a little easier to catch the melody on that recording than the bill evans recording; they defiinitely did that thing that they did to it.
