I have been listening, of late, to this album on repeat and it's fantastic! I chose to transcribe the 'head' and solo for the young musicians of York's Jazz Summer School (2019)
Below is a transcription of the 'head' or melody. (There are also rhythm section charts in the PDF)
Secondly, for improvising practice and learning language jazz language, here's the transcription of Kenny's solo. In my opinion, it's a perfectly formed blues solo! It really shows what you can do with a minor pentatonic and serious rhythm and groove!
Enjoy playing along with the record if you have it. If not click here to link to Blue Note, where you can stream the album, or buy it, as well as read more about Jimmy Smith.
That's me done here, until next time, enjoy practising!
