Arturo Sandoval and Dizzy Gillespie trade solos live

Posted on May 18, 2009 by Sweets

I don’t know the name of the tune because the video is in a foreign language as far as descriptions go. What I do know is that Arturo Sandoval and Dizzy Gillespie both sound great on this live Jazz trumpet video. Arturo Sandoval plays some really fast licks and a high note at the end of the first tune. Then Arturo starts playing piccolo trumpet out of all things, Arturo sounds good though, then he finally finished on yet another trumpet high note.

    It’s called “And then she stopped”, recorded I think at the Royal Festival Hall in London… I was at this gig, it was great. The albums is “Live at the Royal Festival Hall”.

    Ok, in the video, if you click on the time bar at 1:30 Arturo plays a lick. Does anyone know what scale that’s off of?

  3. Sweets says:

    At 1:30 Arturo does play a very melodic passage. I think the key changes to G minor then to C minor while Arturo played that lick.

    The first part of his lick is based off the G minor scale starting on the 5th. Then Arturo goes to the C minor scale and adds a Major 7th twice which essentially means he is using the C harmonic minor scale.

    The best part of the lick is the end where he goes down the C minor triad with a whole step above each minor triad. It sounds cool because Arturo hit the Major 7th again to start off the minor triad ending.

    I will be adding a written version of the minor triad lick Arturo played at the end to this website because it sounds really cool.

  4. I have read a few of the articles on your website now, and I really like your style of blogging. I added it to my favorites web page list and will be checking back soon.

    I’ve been trying to transcribe Arturo’s solo at 1:30 but I’m not getting very far. Can anyone tell about it or even transcribe it for me? Thank you.
