Miles Davis - Kind of Blue Reviews
Sure, we're glad to have this, but -- please note, it is not a complete transcription as claimed; the drum part is not transcribed. Instead the transcribers fink out by writing "Drums play time" -- uh, yeah, that's what jazz drummers do all right. But there's a good reason why jazz drummers spend a lot of time with this recording. The transcribers don't know about that, apparently.
OK, getting this transcription book is a no brainer. Kind of Blue is as close to being part of every jazz musicians education as anything ever will be.
Spot on transcriptions.
Some people rate jazz on how inaccessible and esoteric it can be. I don't. This era and these players are a great way to listen to jazz horn improvisation.
As you can probably detect from listening to the songs first, all of Davis's solos except Freddie Freeloader are playable by all levels of play. Also good are Coltrane's 2 and Adderley's 1 ballad solos. Cannonball seems to rush his solo on the recording but if you slow it down just a little bit, the notes will come in clearer. ---- Miles' solo on Four from his BLUE HAZE session forms a bridge between So What and Freddie Freeloader and can be found in MILES DAVIS Bb TRUMPET book but the melody is not included so you have to get it from the Jamie Aebersold Miles Davis booklet if you don't already have it.
This is the whole Kind of Blue album, transcribed.
