I'm actually reading "Monk" by laurent de wilde. He said when they were recording the Brilliant Corners album they couldn't get through a single useable take because of progressions like this so all of the songs are spliced from various takes. I was quite shocked, considering we are talking about monsters like Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, and Oscar Pettiford. It may not be the most out-there progressions, but it can be deceptively tricky (at least in the 50's ).
