I came across this beautiful bossa nova piece on Jim Hall's "All Across the City". I scribbled down a rough transcription of the song. However, I'm unsure of the chord progression of the A section and thus need to consult you out there.

The letter A has a few suspended 4ths that resolve to 3rds, and some augmented 5ths that resolve down a half step (e.g. at bar 4 of A: F/A -> Am), which I've left aside from the chord progression. I'm particularly uncertain about the F#m7b5 (or Am6) at bar 12 of letter A. Does anyone have a sheet music to this wonderful piece?

Here's Jim Hall's treatment of the composition (in A minor) along with Brazilian MPB-4 group's sung version (in C minor):
All help is much appreciated!

Best, Ville
