Jazz/Standard Turnarounds

A Turnaround is a series of chords that lead back to a repeated section of a song. Jazz/Standard Turnarounds are usually the last two bars of each eight bar section of a typical 32-bar AABA form song. These versatile progressions can double as Engings by adding an appropriate I chord (i.e., "I", "I6", "IM7", "IM9", "I7", "I6/9", and "I9"). Below you will find numerous examples of Jazz/Standard Turnarounds. Each chord is generally played for two beats. Although the Turnaround examples are shown in the Key of E to permit easier analysis, they can be transposed to any key. Below are examples of Jazz/Standard Turnarounds that begin with "E" ("I") chords.
