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.

Roy Hargrove transcription Strasburg St. Denis with Sax solo

Posted on July 28, 2019 by Sweets

This trumpet solo transcription with Roy Hargrove on trumpet and Justin Robinson on saxophone is really great. The transcription is from the album Earfood. Another trumpet transcription of Roy Hargrove soloing over Strasburg St. Denis was posted earlier in this website’s history, but every variation is worth listening to. The better thing about this video […] Read the rest of this entry…

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!

Wynton Marsalis Trumpet Solo Transcription on Struttin’ With Some Barbecue

Posted on December 23, 2018 by Sweets

Here is a very laid back Jazz trumpet solo by Wynton Marsalis playing over the tune Struttin’ With Some Barbecue. There are some really good jazz licks in this video. What’s interesting is this recording was performed by the “Marsalis family” aka The Lincoln Jazz Orchestra. I thought it would be more cool if the […] Read the rest of this entry…

Freddie Hubbard trumpet transcription on Birdlike 3

Posted on April 23, 2016 by Sweets

Here is an awesome Freddie Hubbard trumpet transcription of him playing over the changes of Birdlike. Freddie uses a lot of bebop scale combinations to make the Jazz solo flow really well. When I heard this trumpet solo for the first time a while ago I really fell in love with it. Special thanks to […] Read the rest of this entry…

Arturo Sandoval trumpet transcription on There Will Never Be Another You

Posted on February 14, 2015 by Sweets

I first heard this Arturo Sandoval trumpet solo on YouTube without the transcription. Thanks to Joseph Prieto you can now take a look at the transcription of Arturo’s trumpet solo on There Will Never Be Another You and try to get some new Jazz licks from it. It would’ve been nice if Joseph added the […] Read the rest of this entry…
