I'm trying to transcribe Larry Goldings' "Molto Molto", and so far I have the chords like this ...

[A]
Ebm7 | % | Abm7 | % |
Abm7 B13 | E6 G7b9 | C7 | Bb7#9/D |
Ebm7 | % | Abm13 | % |
Ebm7 B13 Emaj7 | F7 Bb7#9 | Ebm7 | % |

[B]
Abm13 | % | % | F7#9 | Bb7#9 |

... but I'm having difficulty getting the final three long chords following the tag ending in this live performance, as they have some alterations and clusters that I can't pick out. Can anyone with sharper ears help?

In this clip, the piece starts at 3:55, and the final three chords are at 13:16.



("Ramshackle Serenade" in the video title is the name of the concert tour, taken from the title of one of the band's albums. This piece, "Molto Molto", is not on that album but is on their "Live at Smalls".)

I'd say Cb+(7b9) Bb(7b9) Ebm11 (or Ab13/Eb)

I'd go:

LH- F RH- A Eb G# B ( hitting the G# you can ghost a Gb to it with your middle finger)
LH- Bb RH- C# D Gb Ab Bb
LH- Eb RH - Gb C Db F Ab and hit the Leslie with the pinky of your left hand.

Linwood's version makes sense. I'm listening on my tablet speakers so couldn't tell it was an F in the bass. That would make it F7#9b5. Second chord sounds to me like he's doing the Ab at the bottom of the voicing. So Bb7(#9)aug. (Instead of b9, which was a mistake in my first post.)

Yeah, I cheated on the Ab. lol It's been so long since I've played B3 that it's hard for my hand to hit it. My D finger is up under the felt on the motif. I'm so outta shape 'n suck.

That sounds right, thanks.

- F7b9#9#11 (F : A Eb Gb Ab B)
- Bb7#5#9 (Bb : Ab Db D Gb Bb)
- Ebm13 (Eb : Gb C Db F Ab)

To make it easier to read/play, I've written it as:
- F7#9#11 (F : A Eb Ab B)
- Bb7+ (Bb : Ab D Gb Bb)
-Ebm13 (Eb : Gb C F Ab)
