these are more along the lines of changes most jazz musicians will play.  the changes in the above posts might be more true to the original tune as it is written, but the changes in my post are what most jazz musicians will use.
bye bye blackbird is one of those tunes where there are plenty of different little interpretations of the changes, so basically it boils down to listening to the bass player, and vice versa.
the miles changes for the bridge-like area are as follows:
c-7 f7|b-7 e7|bb-7 eb7|a-7 d7|
g-7   |g-7   |ab-7 db7|g-7 c7|

i've lurked quite awhile on these boards, so i thought i would like to start posting here and there :)
dear dr. whack in that case, yes it is and i have just received a message from kai which says no he aint kai winding .thanks to glen f. and are you glenn miller?
no, i ain't and since that kai died, i don't wanna be just yet, hehe.

these chords are what my jazz piano teacher called "french chords".  the changes are lovely - quite inspir9ing - lots of chord substitutions etc written for you.  glad to help.

if anyone knows about these french chords i'd be interested.  i can't seem to find them anywhere and i know that there are pages and pages of them somewhere.

there is an old french book entitled "anthologie des grilles de jazz". it contains changes to over 1500 standard tunes. maybe your teacher was referring to that book?
savage - many thanks - i'll go look.

all i've been able to find on searches for "french chords" etc is a changed neopolitan 6th.  i'll let you know. kai
