    Thank you for providing the invaluable service of contributing your knowledge to those eager to learn. That said, I looking to gain further knowledge about jazz music and theory in general. I currently listening to the "standards" in the Real Book to help get a better "feel" for what is jazz music, and how to play jazz. My question is the chord progression of the song starting Ab-7 ,Bb-7/Ab Ab-7, Bb-7/Ab and progressing to G#-7/F#,F#,G#-7/F#, and finally to AM7b5,FM7b5 and finally finish with CM7b5. And I'm looking for some help in understand the change in key(if in fact there is one), why and how it works . I still a relative novice to jazz but I'm listening intently and trying to get a better grasp. Any information is helpful, I hope this question is not to rudimentary. thank you

    Did you mean to post here or in Lynn Seaton's forum? I'll clean up the unintentional one.
