I love this tune! The Real Book has the third chord as an Ab7, though the majority of recordings I’ve found seem to prefer a D-7. I wouldn’t say the Ab7 is necessarily “wrong” though, as several some recordings use the Ab7. Learn to navigate both, and use your ears at jam sessions!

There Is No Greater Love Play Along
Shuffle feel. This is a fun one to play with!
Harry “Sweets” Edison Plays There Is No Greater Love
He’s one of my favorites! NO ONE swings like Sweets!
Sonny Rollins Blows Over There Is No Greater Love
This is perhaps the most aggressive take on the tune I’ve ever heard!
John Scofield Plays There Is No Great Love
Nice Performance! They use the concert Ab7 instead of the D-7. Most recordings seem to prefer the D-7; however, the Real Book uses the Ab7.
Raj Rathor. This guy is pretty much ridiculous. His harmonics at the beginning remind me of Lenny Breau.
Keith Jarrett. Need I say more? Perhaps the World’s Greatest Improviser
Kenny Barron/Brad Meldau. Unreal. Meldau plays a fairly rare Fazioli piano. I tried one in New York one time. Nice pianos, different concept than a Steinway (which is still my favorite!)
They are a fan of using alt changes Bb7 A7 Ab7 G7. Cool reharm!
Miles Davis Plays There Is No Greater Love. Genius.
I love Paul Chamber’s double stops on this tune on the bass! These guys use the D-7 instead of the Ab7. That pretty much tells it all right there, though some heavyweights do seem to use the Ab7.
Lady Day, Billie Holiday.
