Joel Frahm Transcription - Cherokee
Hey everybody! By request, here is Joel Frahm's solo over Cherokee from Matt Marantz's YouTube video. If you don't know Joel Frahm, you need to check him immediately. So much language! I keep his duo album Don't Explain with Brad Mehldau on regular rotation. I also recommend Sorry, No Decaf and vocalist Cyrille Aimee's Live at Smalls album, where he appears as a sideman with Roy Hargrove.
Also, be sure to check out Matt Marantz. Killin saxophone and EWI player!
This transcription was a little tricky to notate. I have a lot of mixed meter in there to break up the phrases into shapes I recognize. This is really just for my understanding. I placed chord changes throughout to help you follow along. Enjoy!
