Round Midnight  -   Thelonious Monk
                 -----------------------------------------------


                                   arranged by Howard Wright





I worked out these chords by listening to two versions of the song
I've got - one with Monk playing solo at the piano, and another with
him and drums, bass, horns etc.


The two versions aren't exactly the same - but I've tried to find
the common ground between them to get a 'basic' arrangement.

You can play around with the chords, jazzing them up a bit, but the ones
I'll give at the start are the 'basics'.

Within the versions I've got, there's a lot of variation in the chords.
Especially Monk's playing at the piano - he seems to love adding flat
5ths to every other chord !!!

In fact, if you want to increase the 'Monk factor', instead of playing
straight 7ths, play 7-5 chords instead.

E.g in the intro chords instead of :  Am7-5   D7    Gm7-5   C7  etc

You could play :  Am7-5   D7-5    Gm7-5   C7-5   








Intro :
--------


   Am7-5               D7            Gm7-5             C7    

E---------8------8-------------------------6------6------------
B---4-6-8----8-6----8-6-7------------2-4-6----6-4---6-4-5------

   Fm7-5              Bb7

E--------4------4------------------------------------------------

Verse 1 :
----------


 Ebm  Ebm/D  Ebm/Db   Cm6  Abm7  Db7   Ebm6               Bm7  E7  Bbm7  Eb7

  Abm7            Db9      Ebm*   Ab7-5  Cm7-5  F7   Bb7-5

E--------11---14---13---------------------------------------------
B-----12---------------14---11------------------------------------
G--13--------------------------------------11---10----8h9---------
D--------------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------





Verse 2 :
----------

Almost exactly the same - but play Gbmaj7 in the 3rd line
instead of Ebm*



Ebm  Ebm/D  Ebm/Db   Cm6    Abm7  Db7

Ebm6      Bm7  E7  Bbm7  Eb7  

Abm7   Db9  Gbmaj7   Ab7-5  

Cm7-5   F7   Bb7-5







One small variation you can try is on the second line of chords.
Instead of staying on Ebm6 then going to Bm7, you could try this :


Ebm6   Ab7   Bm7 E7 Bbm7 Eb7




The rest of the song repeats these chord changes - but breaks them up a bit
and varies them as the solos go over the top.
