Body and Soul – John Coltrane reharmonization

Below is my transcription of John Coltrane’s reharmonization of “Body and Soul” off the album Coltrane’s Sound.  Easily one of my favorite Coltrane albums, Coltrane’s Sound also features fantastic tunes like “26-2” (Trane changes over Charlie Parker’s tune “Confirmation”), “Satellite” (Trane changes over “How High The Moon”), “Equinox”, and the great ballad “Central Park West.”  In order to keep the lead sheet to 1 page, the tune stops at the end of the bridge – the last A section has the same changes as the first A, so I figure it’s redundant to include the last A section if it makes the lead sheet spill over into another page.
