Philly Joe Jones Drum Transcription - No Room for Squares
We are very excited to finally have these available, after many months of refining. This particular track has some of my very favorite trading from Philly Joe. There is A TON of material just in this one transcription. This seven-page drum transcription with everything Philly Joe plays includes:
-- horn melodies are shown above the drum staff
-- Sixteen-measure intro (great hi-hat work)
-- AABA in melody
-- Philly Joe's playing behind eight bars of Hank Mobley's first solo chorus
-- The two choruses of trading with Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan: Philly Joe's fours, plus what he plays behind the horn soloists. Timing for Hank's first entrance in the exchanges is noted on the music: 5:28.
-- AABA out melody
-- Coda (hi-hat work like the intro)
