Barry Harris Transcribed solo “On Green Dolphin Street”

Barry Harris soloHere’s a transcription I made about two months ago of Barry Harris’ solo on the jazz standard “Green Dolphin Street”.

Barry has some really killin’ II-V-I licks on here and really plays some really nice stuff through the break section.  Check out his lines over the major chords and the break section as well.   Hope you enjoy!

    I have transcribed many Oscar Peterson solos including “The Girl From Ipanema” solo from We Get Requests. I don’t have the skills to post them on a website as you do with such facility; wish I did. Do you do the postings independently? What computer course teaches such skills?
    I’d send you a copy of O.P.’s “Girl From Ipanema” solo if you wish; email me a mailing address for you. Jeffrey Todd Cohen [my teachers have included Barry Harris, Ron Carter, Don Sebesky, Don Friedman, James Heath, Marian McPartland]..
