We have posted the first new transcription in a while to the transcription page. This time around we have a solo from Roger Rosenberg, from a Bob Mintzer big band album. Roger is a long time NYC saxophonist, long standing member of the Mintzer big band and these days can often be heard on tour with Steely Dan.
Head on over and check out the transcription page, and our thanks goes out to Gio Washington-Wright for sending this one in!
It took longer than it perhaps should of, but with the new addition from Maximiliano D.L. we now have a Harry Carney solo transcription in the repository. Since Harry almost universally agreed to be the father of modern jazz baritone saxophone, i’d suggest everyone check it out! Its from a beautiful album where Harry got some much deserved solo time with strings.

Our thanks go out to Masahiro Totsuka for a new transcription this week. This time we have a new transcription from the young dance-baritone player phenom, Leo P (not to be confused with Leo Parker, the 1940’s R&B/Blues baritonist.) The solo is on the classic pop song “My Girl” from the album NYC from the band Lucky Chops. Head on over to the transcription page to check it out!
Leo P is often seen busking in the NYC Subways and has been gaining popularity with the band Too Many Zoos, which you can check out here.
Just in time for what would have been Cecil Payne’s 94th birthday we have another transcription from the bop master. Thanks yet again to Fred Koch, a new Cecil Payne transcription in the repository. The song is “Dexterity”. Fred even provided a YouTube video of the song (labeled incorrectly). Check it out!
Francesco Badaloni has been kind enough to send in another Gerry Mulligan transcription. This time on the song “Trouble In Mind” from a very interesting album, “Witherspoon Mulligan Webster At The Renaissance” with Jimmy Witherspoon and Ben Webster. Head over to the Transcriptions page to check it out.
