This composition has become a standard within the modern jazz crowd and is a great one to know. The tune is in F minor, having a brief chromatic key change to Gb minor which resolves back into the original key during the A section. The B sections hosts a series of chromatically moving ii V I’s beginning on Db major, until it resolves back to F minor for the last A. Be sure to check out the original recording!
