While I was searching the internet a few weeks ago, I stumbled across this site. AJ Kluth has put out a transcription book of Chris Potter solos. Chris Potter is a phenomenal tenor saxophone player that is pretty popular on the jazz scene these days. I’ve been working on transcribing a few Chris Potter solos myself, so I know first hand that it is an insane task and very time consuming.
I just received the book today and am excited to look through it and work on some of the solos. The most important thing for me when dealing with transcriptions isn’t learning a solo note for note, but rather to gain an understanding of an artists conception in playing. Especially where it differs from mine. If I can understand a tiny bit of the player’s concept, I find that I can adapt it to my playing which is really cool. Thanks AJ for the great book. Steve
