Junior Cook Transcription

 

Tonight we will be performing music from Blue Mitchell's classic Blue Note album THE THING TO DO at The Black Lotus Brewery in Clawson. So I thought I would share my transcription of tenor Saxophonist Junior Cook's solo on "Step Lightly."  Junior's well conceived lines and logical flow are in full display as is his beautifully large tone and swinging time-feel. Check out how patient he is with different motifs!

His solo begins here at 1:08. Also check out a very young Chick Corea on piano! Amazing solos on this record and fantastic 'comping.

Happy listening! Happy practicing!

    Thoughtful music selection is a key ingredient to a beautiful ceremony and also check [url=https://www.resumehelpaustralia.com/sydney-resumes-review/]sydneyresumes.com.au[/url] site there. Plan to play 5-6 songs as guests arrive and take their seats, 1-2 songs for the processional (the bridal party), one song for the bride's entrance, 1-2 songs for the interlude, and 1 song for the recessional.
