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.

Another Wynton Marsalis solo on Cherokee

I always love listening to Wynton Marsalis solo over the tune Cherokee. Wynton always has a lot of great ideas to keep the solo moving plus it’s fun watching him perform live. The intro is nice as well.

Let me know what kind of jazz licks you get from this solo.

I’ll Close My Eyes – Blue Mitchell trumpet transcription

Posted on October 25, 2020 by Sweets

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.
