Follow John Coltrane’s Solo in Mr. P.C.
Transcriptions are a frightening thing and a valuable learning tool. This transcription of John Coltrane’s solo on Mr. P.C., from the Giant Steps session, is a wonderful exercise to follow and study, and even to try to play. Had Coltrane looked at this music on that day, I have no doubt that he would have had a very different reaction. I remember when I was producing the One Night With Blue Note concert in 1985, with a variety of all-star groups playing music across the history of the label. When I passed out Don Sickler’s transcribed parts from Eric Dolphy’s Gazzeloni for the original members of the band that recorded Out To Lunch, both Bobby Hutcherson and Tony Williams looked at the music and said, “Man, are you sure this is what I played?!!!!!”
