Lester Young & Buck Clayton Transcriptions - One O'Clock Jump

Here are Lester Young and Buck Clayton's solos (tenor saxophone and trumpet, respectively) from "One O'Clock Jump." This is from the 1937 Decca recording. Funny thing about this tune is, despite how famous it is, it really doesn't have a melody (that I know of). I added a riff from the shout chorus at the bottom of the page. I always kinda liked to think of this as the melody. Enjoy!
