Posted on August 23, 2020 by Sweets

With potential hurricanes heading towards New Orleans and other gulf coast regions, we need to have something help keep our spirits up. For us jazz fans, there isn’t much better than a great trumpet jazz solo. So why not make it a Woody Shaw trumpet transcription improvising over the tune, “There Will Never Be Another You”.

This trumpet transcription is great because there are a lot of outside pentatonic patterns to take advantage of. Something Woody Shaw is well known for.

This trumpet solo transcription is off the album ‘Solid’ by Woody Shaw. The trumpet transcription can be downloaded here.

Ryan Kisor transcription – Donna Lee

Posted on July 05, 2020 by Sweets

We all know Donna Lee is a fun yet fast jazz standard to improvise over. Ryan Kisor takes this trumpet challenge to the next level with plenty of triplets in low and high ranges. As always with Ryan Kisor, he likes to take patterns outside the box which means there are some nice licks to take advantage of in this trumpet transcription.

Dexter Gordon transcription – Blue Bossa

Posted on May 31, 2020 by Sweets

This is a nice Dexter Gordon tenor sax transcription over Blue Bossa by Kenny Dorham. Blue Bossa is a really fun jazz standard to improvise over. Minor changes going into a nice ii V7 I. There are a lot of ii V7 I licks to grab from this transcription that sound so natural. Dexter also uses a lot of pentatonic licks and keeps the solo moving smoothly.

Dexter’s solo is followed by nice piano and bass solos.
