  1. The Rhythm changes aren't really being played correctly here. In the AABA the 2nd A should resolve back to Eb, not simply set up a ii-V to Eb and end on the Bb7. In this version, there is no tonal resolution before going into the bridge, so the contrast of the modulation is lost, and melodic ideas implying the tonic (Eb in this case) end up creating what is effectively a dom. sus13 chord. Take a close listen. The transition into the B section is not correct.

    Also, I'd like to point out that your chart here is correct: https://www.learnjazzstandards.com/wp-content/uploads/chord_charts/Eb_Rhythm_Changes_C_Instruments.pdf

    but that is not what is being played on this playalong. I have not checked the other keys' play-alongs, but beware.
