What is/are Rhythm Changes?

In Jazz, Rhythm changes is the name given to a very common chord pro-gression that is vital to know for the following reasons:
1) It is one of the core Chord progressions that many Jazz standards are built on

2) The Rhythm changes sequence of chords is fundamentally important to study deeply as the harmonic progression is one of the most foundational ones any serious student of Jazz will ever learn.

Hank Mobleys Rhythm Changes Solo Analysis

Nick's Materials are always fantastic. They are well thought out and presented. You can tell he puts a lot of time into the presentation and supporting materials. I've always found his materials well worth the price. As a Music teacher of 27 years and performer of more than 40 years I always get a lot from his materials. Thanks for your effort and keep up the good work Nick.

I need to get more deeply in, it would be helpful if it were an octave lower in the range of where the tenor actually sounds. I have an easier time reading below the staff than above on my instrument:-)

Love it!

I am still studying this transcription, and it will take me quite a while to complete it (if ever... :-)). However, at this early stage I already agree that is is a treasure of great ideas, filled with musical nuggets that warrant mining. Playing convincingly over Rhythm Changes is amongst my most pressing weaknesses in my playing, so I more or less stopped my other practicing activities to concentrate on this solo by Hank Mobley, who is one of my favorite sax players. The only thing would appreciate is that as a guitar player I would be happy about guitar tabs and fingering suggestions like you have supplied it for some other items. All the best from Austria, Andreas.
