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.
Hamiet Bluiett is one of the most original baritone saxophonists in the history of the instrument. He’s been a part of many famous musical movements and groups. In the last few years he has begun to struggle with his health, and has recently been hospitalized but is recovering. His family has put together an online fund-raiser to help cover the funds needed for his care especially now that he can no longer work to support himself. Please take a moment and if you’ve appreciated his contribution to music, see if you can help support him. All the details are on the GoFundMe page started by Anaya Bluiett:
Glenn Wilson is a long standing proponent of the baritone sax with multiple albums as a leader and an extensive discography He is adding onto his already impressive collection with a new quintet album titled, Timely. Its a live recording – It swings like crazy and has a really interesting line up of tunes. Check out Glenn’s website here, the album is out today, so be sure to pick up a copy!
You’ll also notice that in an effort to be your one-stop-shop destination for all things baritone, we have started posting some additional transcriptions not hosted on this site around the internets. Be sure to check out those sites in depth too.
Always remember that listening to the recording of a transcription is more important than just reading the transcription, and transcribing it yourself will always be more beneficial. That being said, we hope you enjoy.
