On this glamorous tune Herbie plays a b2/b9 (G#/Ab) on a GMaj7 chord, but it doesn’t sound as striking as in theory would, thanks to his wits.

The piece alternates between A minor and A major. I didn’t include the 7ths and upper tensions (6/13, 7, 9, #11) in chord names; the thick texture of the recording practically includes them all.
