Hi folks. I've been working on some jazz standards, as of late.

Using sheets mainly. (I am not an expert by anymeans, quite the otherway around)

I've came across this A, B ,C in a square, usually over the Key, and i'v no idea what it means.

Does it dictates any specific order in the playing of the piece? Or is it just telling the different parts of the piece?

(e.g http://www.swiss-jazz.ch/standards-jazz/MyFavoritThngs.pdf)

Once again, thank you for your time, and sorry for my ignorance.

Those are rehearsal markings, denoting section beginnings. They're useful, as named, for practice, but they also help with identifying specific parts should you want to analyze pieces theoretically.
Glad to cross paths with you on this adventure called life

lots of flirting with the other key without confirming. JUST LIKE THEIR LOVE IN THE MOVIE OH DAMN.
