I have a treat for all of you! A couple of weeks ago, I discovered a new sax player on Facebook who was posting killer transcriptions on Youtube. His name is Dimitrii Sergheev from Moldova. Dimitrii caught my attention because we seem to have the exact same tastes in great tenor sax solos that need to be transcribed.
I reached out to Dimitrii on Facebook and he happily sent me a bunch of his transcription and gave me permission to post them here on my site. Please support Dimitrii so that he is encouraged to keep transcribing these great sax solos!!! You can find him at Dimtrii Sergheev’s Youtube where you can “like” and “follow” his page to keep up to date with his latest transcriptions. You can also find him on his facebook page as well as hear samples of his sax playing on his soundcloud page.
Herbie Hancock “The New Standard”
The first solo to check out his Michael Brecker’s amazing solo on Scarborough Fair from Herbie Hancock’s CD “The New Standard” which was released in 1996. This was a huge album for me that I listened to over and over again in the nineties and even now. Here is Dimitrii’s Youtube transcription of the solo so you can hear it and below is the solo. Great job Dimitrii and thanks for sharing your great transcription with all of us!! Steve

If you like these type of outside modern sounding lines like I do, be sure to check out my Devastating Lines for Jazz and Funk Soloing for Minor and Dominant Grooves. These two books are filled with great modern 16th note lines in all 12 keys that you can learn and use while soloing. Check out all the 5 star reviews! Steve
