Esperanza Spalding: I Know You Know (chords)

Chords to I Know You Know by Esperanza Spalding

Some say it's a simple blues scale A and D:
http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/esperanza_spalding/i_know_you_know_btab.html

The main progression is switching between a plain D and a Bbmaj7+5,
which is just Bb and C added to the D major scale. For improvisation,
this is pretty much just a D mixolydian scale.
 
Harmony vocals open, and the Wurlitzer enters with the chord D/C ...


 Interlude:
| D | % | Bbmaj9+5 | % |

| D | % | Bbmaj9+5 | % |



 A:

                                                 1.
| Bbmaj9  D(add9) | F#7+9+5  Bm7+5 | Em7 A11  D | %  A6 :||


(from here it's back from the top, down to the 2. ending,
 which is leading on to the C-part.)
