Chord progression for Michel Legrand's The Summer Knows which was written for the movie "The Summer of '42".

One of the best jazz performances of this was done by Phil Woods on his album "Musique Du Bois".

Printable text listing of this chord sequence.

The text listing is an exact transcription of the chord symbols used in the tune. Many slash chords are used there to precisely notate the bass note to be used.

In the GIF  image, the chord symbols using slash chords have been translated into different chord symbols that do not specify a particular bass note. I had to make this translation because the SongTrellis editor is still unable to specify slash chords. When I improve the app to handle these situations I will replace the GIF with one that accurately notates the chord symbols.

The chord voicings used in the MIDI arrangement and GIF listing do use the bass notes specified in the text listing.
