I’m really getting into David Hazeltine’s playing – if you’re not familiar with him, head over to this blog and grab some of his brilliant Venus albums. He combines the clarity of someone like Cedar Walton with a advanced harmonic talent of Bill Evans. He’s definitely no clone though and he has written many great tunes, especially ensemble efforts with the super group he plays in One for All.
This transcription is taken from the album Manhatten, with George Mraz and Billy Drummond and it showcases his utter command of the be-bop language wrapped up in something more modern. This one comes courtesy of John Groves. Enjoy!
