Leo Parker Transcriptions and Frank Basile on a radio show

The transcriptions keep rolling in. Thank you to Avery Barten, for sending in another couple Leo Parker transcriptions. This time on “Glad Lad” and “VI”. Some nice medium-up tempo tracks off of Let Me Tell You Bout It. Head over to the transcriptions page and grab copies for yourself.

In other news, fantastic baritonist, record collector, and jazz scholar Frank Basile recently participated in a very interesting radio show. Its a show that features music found on 78 records. For you young ones out there, that’s not 1978, that 78 rpm vinyl shellac records (thank you for the correction, Frank) that were used mostly in the first half of the 20th century. Frank brought in and discussed a number of excellent Be-Bop era records. To listen to the show head over to the Hot Club of New York website and scroll down to “Frank Basile”.

New Transcription – Cecily Payne on Venita’s Dance

Thanks to Anthony Pellegrini we have another Cecil Payne transcription posted! This one is from a Kenny Dorham album, Afro Cuban, and I personally think this is some of Cecil’s best playing! 

We now have over 100 transcriptions on the transcription page, so thank you so much to everyone who has submitted and continues to send them in! We have over 60,000 downloads so far, that’s a lot of JazzBariSax out there.

Head on over to the Transcriptions page to check out the new Cecil solo and the other ones there.

New Ronnie Cuber Transcription – Bye Bye Blackbird

Thanks to Andrea Iurianello, we have a new Ronnie Cuber Transcription in the repository. This solo is on the classic standard, “Bye Bye Blackbird”. Very nice solo with a somewhat relaxed vibe from Ronnie playing with a great band.

Below you can check out a video of the transcription author playing the solo, or head on over to the Transcription Page to download a copy for yourself.

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.
