Dinah turnaround

Apologies if this has been covered before: there is this cool, slightly "out" turnaround that DR and his disciples play in between the first two A sections. On Jazz a Vienne, it happens during the first chorus of Weiss' improv and once more somewhere else in the tune... my ear hears it as (key of G) Bb7/Eb7/Ab7/Db7 to a quick D7.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

TIA,
Norman CT-USA

    Hi Norm,

    It sounds like you might mean this kind of thing?

    --------------------------------------------------
    ---8--8-------6--6------------------------------------
    ---8--7-------6--5------------------------------------
    ---7--8-------5--6------------------------------------
    ---8--8-------6--6------------------------------------
    --------------------------------------------------
    ...F9...Bb6....Eb9...Ab6...
    (in G)

    The rhythm is a little weird-it starts on the third beat of the fifteenth bar or somewhere around there (if this is even what you're asking for-I'm at work so don't have ...Vienne handy.)

    Hope that helps,
    Jack.

    That turn around and all it's variations are in the Gypsy Rhythm book.

    I call it "Django Changes"...he had some cool ways of using that.

    Thanks guys!

    That's it: now for the subtle nuanced five year incubation...

    Yeah-I've been trying to sneak them in other places too...right now I'm using it as a long out (extending the V-I series) on Viper's Dream:

    G7 |C7 |F6..F7..Bb6..Eb7|..Ab6..Db7..Gb6..C7|F6maj7 |
    or my other current favorite-stealing the opening of Place de Brouckere and using that as the tag...

    best,
    Jack.
