Miles Davis trumpet transcription – Straight, No Chaser

Posted on March 28, 2021 by Sweets

Back when I was younger, Miles Davis was one of the jazz trumpet players I started off transcribing. I didn’t transcribe this particular version of Straight, No Chaser though. The one I transcribed was when Miles was much older. I love Miles Davis solos because he uses a lot of bends. This particular solo he added a little “When the Saints Go Marching In” riff.

You’ll enjoy this smooth trumpet transcription of Blue Mitchell improvising over the jazz standard tune, “I’ll Close My Eyes”. The trumpet transcription is in a different key, but don’t worry about that. There are still some nice patterns to get from it.

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.
