Lester Young Transcription - Boogie Woogie
Transcribed: August 15, 2016
Here is a transcription of Lester Young's solo on "Boogie Woogie (I May Be Wrong)." Recorded in 1936 before the Decca recordings, producer John Hammond described this session as "the only perfect, completely perfect recording session I've ever had anything to do with." This solo is a national treasure. I have all my beginning-jazz students check out this solo. The changes are two choruses of a C concert blues. Enjoy!
