For this week’s new transcription, I am posting the first 5 choruses of a transcription that Igor Tomanoski sent me this week. This is Michael Brecker soloing over Recorda Me with Steps Ahead in the 80’s.
This is from a Youtube video that I first heard a few years ago. This is just classic “tearing it up” Brecker!! I actually started transcribing this solo a few months ago but quickly realized it was going to be more difficult to complete than I thought. Luckily Igor took on the challenge for the first 5 choruses!
Michael Brecker in the Early 80’s
This one should give you enough material to shed for the next few months!! Enjoy! Thanks again to Igor Tomanoski for sharing it……….Steve
Michael Brecker-Recorda Me
If you love these type of outside Brecker type lines, be sure to check out my PDF book “Devastating Minor Lines for Jazz and Funk Soloing” in which I take 100 classic minor “outside” lines in 16th notes and write them out in all 12 keys. These lines are devastatingly awesome!! (that’s my opinion anyways……)
