I am incredibly excited to share this full 17 page transcription in Bb of Mike Tucker and Tucker Antell taking absolutely ridiculous tenor sax solos over the tune “The Eternal Triangle”. I had started this transcription over two years ago and gotten four choruses into it when I got distracted with other matters. Luckily, a young man named Wesley Chin, was more determined than I was, and finished the whole 17 page solo of the two Tuckers doing battle over this burnin’ tune! These two tenor sax players are totally amazing and this video and the sax playing on it is just insane!
Thanks so much for Wesley Chin for completing this and agreeing to share it here on my site with all of you! Wesley has a website at wesleychin.com where he has many more transcriptions as well as some transcription books he has had published. Check out his great work! You can find a link to the PDF of the full 17 page solo at the bottom of the page.
I first heard of Mike Tucker years ago when I came upon a recording of Mike playing a gig with George Garzone. It had a “Live at the Lighthouse Steve Grossman and Dave Liebman sound” to the recording with Mike Tucker on the tenor sax and George Garzone on the soprano sax. Mike Tucker sounded amazing and I have been a fan ever since! Here is Mike Tucker’s website if you want to find out more information on him. He has been touring with Arturo Sandoval for the last four years.
Tucker Antell I have heard about more recently. He’s a phenomenal player with incredible technique and endless ideas and energy. I bought his CD “Grime Scene” last year and it is a great album. Here is Tucker Antell’s website if you want to find out more about him. When I saw videos of these two great players doing a gig together, I had to check them out ASAP! Enjoy! These are two incredible sax players that deserve wider recognition. Check them out! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
