Ola Jovino,

In your live seminar on * E Preciso Dizer Adeus*, you play and talk about a recurring turn around in Bossa Nova music. You quickly said the progression and I am wondering if there is a kind of formula (maybe not a formula like a 2,5,1 per se), but something to latch on to like a formula? I hear it in so many pieces and am wondering if there is some way to grasp it in general? Are the measures 8, 9, and 10 in the above piece the turn around? (Those were the bars I was having trouble figuring a transition from Sec A to B originally.)

Bbm7, Eb13, Bbm7, Eb13, Ebm7?

I think I am playing it in another piece where it is

D13, D9#5, G9 Sus, G7b9 C(+2)/ D, E, C, Ab, D, C is it the same sort of progression?

Any help anyone can give me to clarify it and make it easier would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to you and Haden. PianoGroove is a terrific site!
