Another impressionistic approach! This was quite interesting. As it is, it's already quite difficult harmonically and you stretched it out even further.

Do you ever think about people thinking it is too intellectual? It does require some focus to think about the form since it's already unusual.

I really liked it a lot myself.

I get resistance when I call Along Came Betty smile Maybe they didn't woodshed...LOL.

As Cus said, there's a lot packed into that one chorus.

Btw: here's to knowing one's tradition, Jarrett plays stride (in a home recording done '66):
Holy Dim-chords Batman, I thought it was Tatum at first:

Just a short snippet of Giant Steps. Not going to do some transcription for JOTW smile

BTW - First recording using Nord Electro 4 HP. I just recorded ambient from speakers and it sounds real (minus the backing track).

Hey JW,
Nice job on Giant Steps.
I'm also not doing jotw this week.

Chris,
A lot of people play Tatum, but this is something else. The touch is incredible. It really sounds like Tatum.
