Regretfully can't fly to Paris and attend the class. He plays every chord except one on the 5th fret. Wish I knew these subs

I'm not up to transcribing the changes (which, BTW, start at 5:14) in detail right now, but they are the familiar "Freddie Green" or shell-chord three-note shapes and follow the I-vi-ii-V pattern of the rhythm changes.
What I find interesting is the advocacy of shell chords rather than the fuller voicings that I've seen suggested at any number of GJ-rhythm workshops. The "stay out of the soloist's way" advice is exactly what I was taught when learning standard swing-rhythm protocols--and why I default to shell chords when backing anyone.
