My source was the "Blue Train" rendition published in the first volume of the Berklee Real Book. You're correct, they did the changes in the wrong key. Since they did it in the key of C, they must have published an alto sax player's transcription without transposing to concert key.

I'm going to change the SongTrellis arrangement to use the changes that Don Sickler used for his transcription of Coltrane's solo.

To wit:

| Eb7(#9) | Eb7(#9) | Eb7(#9) | Eb7(#9) |
| Ab13(#11) | Ab13(#11) | Eb7(#9) | Eb7(#9) |
| Bb7(#9) | Bb7(#9) | Eb7(#9) | Eb7(#9) |
