Don Cherry's "Art Deco" Lead Sheet

First appeared on Don Cherry's 1988 album of the same name , the tune features an unusual intro in two parts, first solo and second with the rhythm section.

The chord progression is straightforward save for a few spots like the turnaround at the end of the first A section (F Maj7-Ab7|Db7 - Gb7) and the fact that the A section is 16 bars while the B section is extended to 20 bars through the insertion of a mii7-V7 a minor third above the tune's key signature (b19-20 of the second A section).
