"I'll be seeing you" transcription

Manolo Pereira sent me a transcription for one of my favorite jazz standards "I'll be seeing you". On YouTube Manolo posted a video of himself playing kurts "I'll be seeing you" solo from the Chris Cheek album "I wish I knew".
When I was adding the transcription to the transcription page, I realized that the Jens Larsen already did a transcription of the tune. I'm sharing Manolo's work here anyway since he did such a nice job with be video(s).

 Manolo also did a video (and transcription) for, yet another beautiful standard tune, "Skylark".

Lesson of the week: Kurt Rosenwinkel's F blues Lick

A lot of people are doing a "Lick of the week" style video on YouTube these days, but only a few does it the right way. I came across Kosmidis today and this lick (or line) sound pretty good. I'm still missing where exactly the lick was taken from and it would have been nice if he had played it with accompaniment.

'Our Secret World' transcription

Teis Semey did an amazing job transcribing ten beautiful pages of Our secret world played lived at The Village Vanguard on January 7. 2009. The recording was made by NPR Music and can be found on their site. Back in 2012 I shared "Little dreamer" from the same concert (although I believe this tune was taken from the second set).

The transcription Teis Semey send me is very detailed and even includs a transcription key.

Below you can listen to the tune on YouTube, but note that the timestamps found in the transcription doesn't match this video.

Altered V7-I "Inspired by Kurt Rosenwinkel"

I actually like this dominant V lick that Michael McClintock posted on YouTube.
The triads has that Rosenwinkel signatur sound to it, thatI've described earlier. That is properly also the reason Michael titled the video Altered V7-I "Inspired by Kurt Rosenwinkel"
