    Do you know of how to access the music or have an idea of what the changes are? I figured out the melody. I can post a crappy notation of the coda melody in this clip if that helps. The pickup to the coda is at about 5:57.

    Ireal pro app has this which seems broadly on the right lines.

    Bar 7 of the coda looks a bit suspect to me, but there are probably various ways to handle it. (I like Jim Hall’s ending on Jim Hall Live for example).

    Awesome!! That's close to what I was thinking.

    Yes bar 7 is absolutely suspect but I think it starts you on the right track. The cycle (bar 7-9 in the chord sheet) seems to include 8 melody notes (and chords). But the cycle does seem to start on Eb and end with a Bb7 resolving to an Eb.

    Here's my approximation of the melody in this particular performance.

    I think you quite often hear that cycle extended by one more step, i.e. Eb Ab Db Gb B E, then end on that final Eb chord. I’ve done that before, and I’ve heard it on a few recordings. (May not be quite what Monk did though!)

    Yeah I think I'll do that with a Bb between the E and Eb.

    I think the cycle only had 6 there. Basically what's on the chord sheet I assume.

    This version may be easier to listen to (easier to hear)...
