Here is a great tenor sax solo that I transcribed a couple of years ago. It’s from Jeff Hellmer’s album “Peak Moments”. The tune is a standard called “What is this thing called love?” and features Rick Margitza on the tenor saxophone.
“What is This Thing Called Love” a great standard by Cole Porter that all jazz players should know. It’s a 32 bar AABA form and is pretty easy to learn. It has some cool minor ii-V sequences in the chord progression and I think it was the first tune I learned as a kid that had minor ii-V chords in it. Rick Margitza takes a killer solo in it. When I first heard it I knew I had to transcribe it. Rick plays a bunch of lines in it that really intrigued me and I wanted to see what he was playing and maybe get an idea of how he thinks.
I would really suggest listening to it so you get the sound in your ear. Just reading it off the page won’t give you the big picture. What really attracted me to this solo were the flowing lines and the way that he uses tension and release. Check it out!
