I have been playing transcriptions of great jazz pianists for a long time but in the latest one I am working on has a symbol appearing quite frequently I have never seen before. I don't know how to take a picture of it and post it so I will try to describe it.

Imagine a oval or ellipse with the long side vertical and a tiny piece cut out of the bottom. Then add a short line going horizontally through the middle of the oval, fill in the top half, and put a dot in the lower half.

Thanks.

Looking through various sites with musical symbols, I'm now guessing the symbol in question is the middle fermata symbol shown about halfway down on this page:

but the top and sides are curved due to whatever musical printing program or font style the transcriber uses. This interpretation seems to make sense with the performance and music. What do you think?
