Hey guys,

I've recently been focusing on building chord voicings and progressions. I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations regarding songs that contain extended chords and modulations. Ideally it would be a single song that modulates multiple times by means of different techniques. I think that would help me get my head around the various approaches/cliches.

Maybe some old jazz standard?

Thanks in advance.

"All the Things You Are" have some big steps and alternating between 4 keys I think, you can check it out as well.

Thanks guys. Think I'm going with "All the Things You Are." Giant Steps is a beast. I'm holding off on that one for now.

Four by Miles Davies is great one!

You can also try April in Paris and basically standards that have up to 3 key changes.
