  • Jazz standards that are based on the "Spanish" chord progression?

    Can you name/recommend some for me?
    I'm not sure what is the official name, but it goes (if I've written correctly) Im-bVII-bVI-V

    <div class="signaturecontainer">I used to be &quot;with it&quot;, then they changed what &quot;it&quot; was.<br />
    Now, what I'm with isn't &quot;it&quot;, and what's &quot;it&quot; seems weird and scary to me.<br />

    Like in "C minor, B flat, A flat, G"? Your choice of numerals is a strange way to write what is an extremely common progression that is mostly used in pop ballads and folk songs and whatnot (hit the road, jack) but not typically in Jazz (though you could). The correct way to write it would be vi minor-v- iv-iii as in Am-G-F-E in the key of C.

      Yes, that is the one I meant, thank you.

      Why doesn't the correct way contain the I ?
