I wouldn't call it a known progression, exactly, but it seems to make
some musical sense. It depends on the melody.

It starts and ends on Ab, and it just sounds Ab-ish to me. That doesn't
mean it can't travel to other keys at any time, it just means that it
starts and settles down at the end there. Key signature isn't
necessarily the final word on the subject.

Did you write this tune or what? The changes remind me of something
Steve Swallow might write.
