Piano transcription and lesson 1

Something new for the Spring! This is the first of a series of posts that link through to my friend Bill’s site, www.jazzpianoonline.com.

Periodically Bill will post a transcription excerpt for piano that moves into a full-blown lesson on his site. JazzPianoOnline I think is the premier source for learning jazz piano online – it covers virtually everything from transcriptions, voicings, style guides for the famous pianists and arrangements.

Please note that you will need to subscribe, although the site is well worth a recurring monthly membership of $32, especially if you were still learning the ropes.

For this first post, Bill has transcribed a bit of Tommy Flanagan’s recording of Oleo(1977 album, Eclypso) to demonstrate an improv lesson of Chord Scale theory:

Enjoy! And – via the comments – let me and Bill know how you find it.
