Aaron Goldberg – The Rules

Here’s a lead sheet I transcribed of the Aaron Goldberg cover of Jobim’s “The Rules,” from his great 2010 album Home. The track features Mark Turner, Reuben Rogers, and Eric Harland.

The transcription came out “okay,” but I am unsure how to label that uber-cool (b6) opening chord. Should I call it F(#9b6), or maybe Db+maj7? Let me know if you’ve got an opinion.


This was the opening song of the groups recent set at the Village Vanguard, lovingly broadcast by the good people at WGBO. Check it out.
