Transcribing music for my tribute to the music of Dorothy Ashby & Frank Wess.  It's a tedious and yet I'm finding it fun and I'm learning alot! Finding out how much I actually do know:)  I took a transcribing workshop at the California Jazz Conservatory (formerly the JazzSchool) with Bob Karty in early May of this year.  We used Autumn Leaves as our focusing on solos by Miles Davis. Karty encouraged us to see how pay attention to the notes Miles used in his solo and their relationship to the chord progressions (a study within a study!) The 2 hours sped by, but I felt like I had enough information to create charts my players can read and understand. 

more soon.

peace
