We worked up a number of Bob Mintzer big band charts and Bob played great during that concert and was such a humble and nice guy to meet. Since that time I have bought so many recordings of Bob and I have loved his playing and concept through the years. Bob is the perfect fusing of advanced harmonic concepts , time and melody.
Not to mention that I have always loved his tenor saxophone tone and phrasing. Earlier this week, I was cleaning my desk area and found the manuscript paper with the start of the solo. I got a sudden surge of adrenalin and decided to finish the transcription. A couple of hours later and a few cups of coffee and I was done. There are many rhythmic, harmonic and melodic ideas used that are worthy of imitation. I believe most of the transcription is accurate or close to it but I will say that the first bar on the sixth line of the first page almost gave me a nervous breakdown.
This chord is usually a C minor 7th chord but it sound to me like they are using a C7 9 chord there which I really love the sound of. So check back when you have a chance.
