Changes for Little Red's Fantasy. Woody Shaw recorded this for the first time on his Muse Records album Little Red's Fantasy. It was actually heard for the first time when he toured with Dexter Gordon on Dexter's return to the USA in the late 70's. That tour was documented on Dexter's album "Homecoming" on Columbia Records. The song is dedicated to Maxine Gregg, Woody's wife and manager who had brilliant red hair.

Printable GIF image of the score for this progresssion. Because of some limitations in the editor used to prepare the score, it has inaccuracies in the chord symbols displayed that you'll need to revise by hand. The two C6 chord which begin each A section in the tune are actually C6/9 chords. Also, the symbols for the Abmi and F#mi chords in the B section of the tune should be suppressed. The chords played there are actually tone clusters that don't fit usual harmonic categories.
