  1. Have you heard about gypsy jazz? You should check it out, it will help you develop a better understanding of the elements and idiosyncrasies of a piece like this. It is a wonderful and virtuosic style of music and I'm afraid you have missed an opportunity to really showcase that here. By the way, A7 is just a dominant substitution (in this case, the secondary of D7) which is used quite often by composers to disrupt the cliched dominant to tonic (or subdominant) movement. Actually, the 12 bar blues itself is an example of dominant substitution, albeit a little convoluted.
