Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

November 9, 2014 | Au Privave; Charlie Parker


It's downright mesmerizing seeing a solo on a printed page, especially moving in real time. You get it visually, one more sense to grasp the periods of intensity and the breaks in between. It's also a way to help demystify a really good solo.

We love the Dan Cohen transcriptions on YouTube. Below is a section of the popular Charlie Parker classic, "Au Privave." Head and three choruses from a recording of the legendary saxophonist.

See what you can glean from it.
