Recordings + Charts from Ben/George/Martin/John/Chief

Yo.

A few weeks ago I did my second-to-last gig in the UK, for a change leading a project and so being able to choose some tunes I’d always wanted to play but hadn’t. It was lovely to have some great friends in the audience, and in the band. George Millard kindly came up from London, and he and Ben brought some nice songs along too. There were lots of contrafacts, lots of bop and a few lovely ballads. I’ve uploaded a selection to a Soundcloud set and am making the PDFs available too. I just zipped up the folder containing the charts but it’s pretty easy to see how they fit together. Hopefully they’ll save people having to transcribe some of the less well-known ones themselves. Do tell me if you end up using them, it’d be nice to know.

  1. Love all the tracks, specially Memories of Green. Not sure how you manage to do all that you do, but great. Somehow found your page while searching for Dave Brubeck’s Take 5 track. That because of Roger Ebert’s ‘Life Itself’ ( great film/documentary) when her wife Chaz mentions playing ‘Take 5’ as Roger says good bye to this world.
