This is a Barry Harris original from his 1962 solo piano album “Listen to Barry Harris – Solo Piano”. I highly recommend this album for study. The tune is similar to Rhythm in F, but with a different bridge. It’s also similar to Parisian Thoroughfare. This is great classic Barry Harris vocabulary, and I’m using it as a practice exercise.
This is from Tristano’s 1955 quartet album for Atlantic. It seemed like a good choice to learn about Lennie’s vocabulary. My favorite single device is the (almost) Hit the Road Jack turnaround at the end of the first B secion (bars 23-24)
I bought a live performance DVD from Jamey Aebersold, and was really captivated by this performance of Anthropology. It’s in Copenhagen, with “NIHOP” on bass. Lots of great “Bud” vocabulary here.
Here is the actual performance, from 1962 in Copenhagen:
From Dexter Gordon’s album A Swingin’ Affair. Great bebop vocabulary.
From Everybody Digs Bill Evans
From the alternate take on the album Clifford Brown and Max Roach, recorded in February 1955. I transcribed this to study some sort-of generic blues vocabulary.
From the album McCoy Tyner plays Ellington, recorded in December 1964 for Prestige. I was looking for Tyner’s approach on super-conventional harmony. It’s still heavily rooted in speedy technique and pentatonics.
from But Beautiful, a live album recorded in 1974 with Stan Getz. This solo is jammed with the classic Bill Evans vocabulary that I love, and it’s quite a composition in it’s own right.
