    This tune is usually played in Eb and the first two bars are a I vi ii V progression which is repeated later. I'm having trouble hearing how Bill Evans reharmonizes the two bars of this progression starting at 00:10. Can anyone figure it out?

    G7#5 to C7#9.
    Keep an Eb on top of both chords.
    I don't think we can voice it exactly like Bill but I'd do this ...
    G7#5: 3X344X to C7#9: X3234X

    You could also play Db9 (X4344X) to C7#9.
