Mulgrew Miller – Body and Soul Reharmonization

Below is my transcription of Mulgrew Miller’s reharmonization of Body and Soul.  The changes are taken from Mulgrew’s version of “Body and Soul” from the album With Our Own Eyes.  The melody as written is just the standard melody to the tune as this transcription was done for the purpose of learning the chord changes.  The major departure from the standard changes is in bars 5 and 6.  Note that these changes are very similar to Freddie Hubbard’s reharmonization from Freddie’s album “Here to Stay” – the major difference being the #5.  Also, the melody in bars 5 and 6 is written up an octave, for the sake of legibility, as the chords are easier to read in this register (at least they are in my opinion).
