For this tab I've just transcribed the chords. Since this is jazz, the
bottomline IS the chords and everything is improvisation from there.
These chords might not be a 100% flawless, so I'd really appreciate some
help and good advice! :D

The main progression is switching between a plain D and a Bbmaj7+5,
which is just Bb and C added to the D major scale. For improvisation,
this is pretty much just a D mixolydian scale. I'll name that part
the Interlude, as the song always returns to that before moving on.

Harmony vocals open, and the Wurlitzer enters with the chord D/C ...
