I agree with Dennis. The long form is the way to go Especially if you have a one page lead sheet already prepared. This method renders an exact model of the form you want without repeats. Fun,isn’t it?

OK I'm trying to do something a little different here and I'm wondering ow to set it up

The song is Stolen Moments by Oliver Nelson

The form is a'AABA

The a' section is a 4 measure the introduction (repeated twice)
The A sections are 16 measure melody (repeated twice)
The B sections are a 12 measure Cm blues where the improvisation takes place and this section has to repeat a variable number of times without a melody

The problem is A and B sections have a different chord patterns

Do I treat the A sections like an extended introduction

I can supply the Aebersold lead sheet if needed
