Chord progression for Bud Powell's Tempus Fugit. 'Tempus Fugit' is Latin for 'time flies'. This progression demonstrates the idea of time flying since it is usually played at a very fast tempo. At the very end of the progression the chord durations get shorter and shorter also giving the idea of time rushing by ever faster.
