Chord changes for Lee Morgan's Soft Touch.

This was first recorded by Blue Note for Lee Morgan's "The Procrastinator" album, which was recorded in the mid-1960s but not released to the public until the late 1970s, several years after Morgan had been murdered. Quite a shame since "The Procrastinator" is one of his two or three best albums.

I could not find a sheet music source for this, so I transcribed it myself. Please check my rendition against the recording for yourself since this is one of my first publicly published transcriptions. If your ears tell you different please let me know.
