So this is the progression for melodies A and B and the solos (listen to the song for clarification)
After the solos there is a bridge where the rhythm changes to 4/4 time and stays till the
end of the
piano solo.

OPTIONAL (it is jazz after all)
the "xh" at the end of the bar means the you play a ghost note and hammer-on to the 
first note of the next
bar... I sincerly hope that you'll get the idea :)

Bridge + piano solo [repeat until cue]
4/4
