Chartography – Reinvented Transcriptions | $44.95
This book transcribes 5 performances of Autumn Leaves, as played by Miles Davis’ Second Quartet, during 1963-1967.
It shows you the original changes and then how they evolved over time.
By looking at how a bass line evolved over multiple choruses and performances, you will understand that a one-chorus transcription cannot help a bass player find out how that bass line was actually built. much less how to write one like it himself.
There are QR codes to recordings of those performances so you can hear how the other musicians reacted to changes in the bass line.
The five performances of Autumn Leaves include:
Monterey Jazz Festival 9/20/1963
Miles in Berlin 9/25/1964
Stadthalle Sindelﬁngen 10/8/1964
Plugged Nickel 12/23/1965
