Freddie Hubbard Misty trumpet transcription

Posted on November 30, 2019 by Sweets

This Freddie Hubbard Jazz trumpet transcription on Misty has a really nice introduction by Freddie. The transcription includes the chord changes which is always a plus. Not sure why chords would ever be excluded from a transcription, but they often times are. This transcription is from the album Sweet Return. The ending has a good […] Read the rest of this entry…

Jazz trumpet jam session heaven

Posted on October 31, 2019 by Sweets

Jazz trumpet heaven jam session. A rare gathering with Dizzy Gillespie, Jon Faddis, Freddie Hubbard, Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Owens, and Vaughn Nark jamming to the tune Tour De Force. Nothing is better than listening to trumpet players show off and jam against each other. With Jon Faddis and super high notes to Wynton Marsalis and […] Read the rest of this entry…

This the first post at JazzTrumpetLicks which utilizes a Facebook embedded video. Let’s hope the Facebook servers are just as fast as Google’s servers. This Roy Hargrove live jazz trumpet solo performance demonstrates some hard bebop lines for sure, that’s why I posted the video.

Five trumpet transcriptions – A Night in Tunisia

Posted on August 31, 2019 by Sweets

Here is a nice video of some great jazz legends taking trumpet solos over A Night in Tunisia. Lee Morgan, Maynard Ferguson, Clifford Brown, Arturo Sandoval, and Dizzy Gillespie. Unfortunately the transcriptions don’t have chord changes. But A Night in Tunisia isn’t too complicated to just grab the chord changes from somewhere else.

Lee Morgan trumpet transcription on Moanin

Posted on April 28, 2019 by Sweets

This trumpet transcription of Lee Morgan was when Lee was with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. There are no chords to go along with the transcription unfortunately. The tune is definitely in a minor key. The best parts of the trumpet solo are when Lee Morgan uses a lot of repetition on certain passages. […] Read the rest of this entry…

Clifford Brown Trumpet Transcription on Daahoud

Posted on March 31, 2019 by Sweets

This jazz trumpet solo transcription by Clifford Brown is absolutely great. Clifford nails every chord change as usual. Daahoud is a tough tune to solo over as well. There are some nice jazz licks that can be copied here. This jazz trumpet solo is so good it’s debatable whether or not Clifford Brown didn’t plan […] Read the rest of this entry…

Scott Englebright transcription on the tune Maynard Ferguson

Posted on February 24, 2019 by Sweets

This is not one of the best trumpet transcriptions, but an amazing trumpet solo by Scott Englebright on the tune Maynard Ferguson. I wonder who named the tune “Maynard Ferguson”? Interesting name for a jazz tune. I hope you enjoy!
