[ performance notes ]  

The Days of Wine and Roses follows an A B A C form. I use the key of A major for this reharm. I only use the tritonic reharmonization technique for the opening two measures of the A section, sticking mostly to II - V sequences for the rest of the tune. I did not tweak the melody. Here are my changes:


A   Db   E7   |   A   G7   |   C   F#7b9   |   B-7   E7   |   C#-7   F#7   |   B-7   E7   |   Bb-7   Eb7   |   D-7   G7   ||
B   C#-7   F#7   |   Eb7b9   Ab-7   |   B-7b5   E7b9   |   G#-7b5   C#7b9   |   F#-7   |   B7   |   B-7   |   E7   D7   ||
A   Db   E7   |   A   G7   |   C   F#7b9   |   B-7   E7   |   C#-7   F#7   |   B-7   E7   |   Bb-7   Eb7   |   D-7   G7   ||
C   C#-7   F#7   |   A7   D   |   D#-7b5   G#7b9   |   C#-7   F#7   |   B-7   D7   |   C#-7   C7   |   B7   Bb   |   A   (D7)   ||

During the solo section, I play   |   C-7   F7   |   B-7   E7   ||   for the last two bars of the B section, slipping in the D7 in the walk on the way to the Db at the beginning of the second A section. Have fun!
