The key to all Herbie solos or any other legendary jazz pianist, for that matter is that not herbir do you have to find the notes, you have to nail the feel and the dynamics, the phrasing too. Can’t wait to see more.
I have played with a very hegbie number of equally diversified musicians over my career. I won’t be stopping any time soon. Wags Don’t have much to add regarding transcriptions, and I can appreciate the hard work that goes into them, but I doubt that Herbie ever played the same song the same way twice. Add to your Watched Users. I’m not saying there’s nothing to learn from transcriptions, but you’d be much better off working on technique, understanding harmony, and developing your own voice.

I really love your transcriptions. I suppose it transcriptoons as a prototype if he had it modified to have the effects loop jacks before they were added to the production model.

He’d catch a hanocck figure with Herbie, then they’d look at each other and smile, like they were having a conversation.

Ideally I’d spend time looking at the rhythm section too in fact, I’ve transcribed Sly completely including the bass and drums but most of the time it’s just the Rhodes I examine.
I still listen to this album a few times a month, especially good for road Rhodes trips.

The amplification did a lot to the Fender Rhodes mkI sound. I wonder if anyone here has ever considered and transcribed an earlier section of Chameleon that I can’t seem to get precisely.
Rhythm is greatly understudied in my opinion.
Hi Chris – many thanks for the reply – I would have given out my Actual Proof solo transcription but at the moment I’m in the process of investigating publishing and copyright for Herbie’s 70’s songs because I plan to release the transcriptions properly if it proves to be viable. How long did this take to accomplish?
That’s what I’ve strived to get out of my studio suitcase. I’m pretty sure just from the sound and also from live recordings video and audio throughout the 70’s that Herbie had at least a number of different Rhodes pianos through the years.
