Djangology: Tune of the Month, September '06
Dell Arte Hommage
thanks guys, that helps me out a lot. from what Barr says, it sounds like Django may have wrote this tune, having a chromatic chord progression, on purpose?
another song that I know of with chromatic chord changes in them might be Sweet Sue or maybe How High The Moon... any other songs that I might be able to practice this idea over?

How about viewing the beginning of the A part like Nuits de Saint Germain des Pres and viewing the changes as ii-ii#-iii (ie Am A#m Bm in case I got notation wrong)? Seems to work.
Also means you can substitute heads and chords either way between the 2 songs (in the A part - B doesn't work).
