Jazzy Turnaround #1

Here is a cool jazzy I, vi, ii, V turnaround in the key of C. The progression begins with C9 (I), moves to the Am6 (vi), then to the Dm7b5 (ii), then to the G7#5b9 (V) before resolving back to the C13b5 (I) chord. Try it as a turnaround in a dominant blues or as an ending to a jazz tune and experiment with a variety of rhythms. Have fun!
