Finally, a Harry Carney transcription!

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.

Thanks goes to the prodigious transcriber, and wonderful baritone saxophonist in his own right, Aaron Lington.
