Hello :)

1) The tonality: The piece is in G Major

2) Altered Chord: The altered chord is found in the first Head in bars 9 to 20 (the time is 0:21-0:52). The altered chords D7#9 and Eb7#9 are highlighted by a change in texture and the bell-like piano chords replace the trill for a few seconds.

3) The term given to the chordal backing the piano is playing during the solos is comping

Hope this helps :)
