Bob Mintzer - Miles Osland

The brilliant tenor saxophonist, Bob Mintzer, is a world-renowned composer, arranger, leader of his own big band and jazz quartet, and a member of the contemporary group the Yellowjackets. He has chosen 12 original compositions from his big band, quartet and Yellowjackets CD recordings for this book, which includes a Performing Artist Master Class CD. This is a great way to learn about his music and his techniques for composition and improvisation. The Performing Artist Master Class CD includes excerpts of Bob's transcribed solo recordings, instrumental examples/demonstrations and many more topics!

Transcription and Analysis by Miles Osland
JBS1

McCoy Page 1 McCoy Page 2 (partial examples)

This tune is a blues in two different keys: F and Ab(concert pitch). What I tried to accomplish with this tune and solo was make the piece flow as if it were a blues in one key.....

Jerry states the melody very freely in the beginning, which is the first twenty-four bars of the transcription. After the head, there are four choruses of blowing.
