Note: This is a typical jazz chorded song. Jazz loves to
mix up chords, anything is possible with Jazz as long as
it sounds good to the jazz musician.  This was a fun song to tab.
A#m is exactly the same chord as a Bbm, same sound same
fingering. Keeping them noted all sharps makes for easier transposing.
(changing the key). Check out my free low-tech transposing device.
You can capo the 1st fret and play these chords ignoring the sharp
symbol. If you are in standard tuning (use an electronic tuner) you can
play up against the recording.
