Subject: Chords Add: TAKE ME TO THE LAND OF JAZZ
Here's a fairly complete set of changes from the Levy sheet music (in the sheet music key of Bb). The dim7 chords I've generally named according to the bass in the sheet music piano part, though playing it through on the guitar I've often used one of the other notes as bass. Similarly the Bb/Gm/Bb could be just Bb.
