Step right up-here are basic changes to a Bb blues in a jazz style. Keep in mind that this is a straight forward example; a true jazz player is full of substitutions and embellishments for this common song form.
The easiest embelishment to make is to substitute dominant 9th and 13th chords for the straight dominant seventh chords pretty much at will.
This is a song form everyone should know, in any key, at any tempo, at the drop of a proverbial hat.....
