I've been looking for this (Transcription of Illinois Jacquet's "Flying
Home" solo) on the web and haven't found it, either free or for sale.
Has anyone got this?

Thanks,

Susan

I'll ask our sax player...we do the tune note for note.

if he has it do you want it in the original horn key or in guitar key?

Curtis Swift has got a good version on his website:
http://www.saxsolos.com/ Look for it by title, artist or transcription
number (#390 for Flying Home).

His standard is excellent, will often do transcriptions on request and
I think charges something like 50c a sheet for those he has already
got. For doing new stuff from scratch it costs more, depending on
length and complexity, but it is still good value.

All the best

Is he the same Curtis Swift I use to know from Winston-Salem, Greensboro
area? He was a fine jazz tenor player. My best to him . Nice guy.

I've got the entire tune transcribed, including the solo. I wrote an
arrangement for my 9-piece band (Alto, Tenor, Trumpet, Trombone, plus
Rhythm section) that takes the best of two different recordings of the
tune. The first chorus of my arrangement is a transcription from the
earlier Goodman/Hampton small group's recording, and includes a
transcribed trumpet solo by (Harry James? I'm guessing because the
recording I have is uncredited) and then the solo section has the
Illinois solo from the later, more famous Lionel Hampton recording;
then the tune finishes with the shout chorus and ending from that later
recording.

Listen to a sample at
http://www.petepetersen.com/petefolder/audioclips.htm -- it's under the
Porkpie listing.

I could make the arrangement available for you if this will suit your
purpose.

Dave,

Variants of this solo (IJ didn't vary it too much, I gather) are all
over the place. I'm actually listening to David Brooks on "the Big Horn
[Disk 4] More Bounce to the Ounce." So I don't know which is the best
incarnation.

Hi Pete,
Just ran across this thread. Do you have a transcription of the HJ trumpet solo? Do you sell any of your transcriptions.
Thanks!
Kurt
