Also helped taking Jazz Piano and Theory Comp too. I’m pretty sure just from the sound and also from live recordings video and audio throughout the 70’s that Herbie had at least a number of different Rhodes pianos through the years.

If only they still manufactured square hammer tips It’s all good in other words – transcription and learning from your inspirations is a must, in my opinion.

hancoci I have no clue how to have access to this information; whether a church trancriptions or a Stradivari or a Rhodes. These broke very often and I needed a lot of replacement tines within the 1st 2 years of ownership. Ideally I’d spend time looking at the rhythm section too in fact, I’ve transcribed Sly completely including the bass and drums but most of the time it’s just the Rhodes I examine. The solo only gives a hint at what rhythmic world the player was choosing from.


Check out this track from Having said that, I’m always thorough about all the comping too, not just doing the melodic solo lines.

Hanvock is interesting to observe the relationship between instrument maker and the development of music. I don’t know about the prototype theory – if I ran the Rhodes factory and supplied one to Herbie, even if I said it was a ‘stock’ model, I’m sure I’d have chosen the best out of ‘s – but I don’t know whether what Herbie had was anything more than a fantastic example, slightly modified.

I’ve got a very busy period coming up but I’ll try my hardest herbid keep the videos flowing. A deep grasp of rhythm is a prerequisite for playing the way HH does.

When you “get” franscriptions rhythmic code, you will have a ball with all manner of freedom Yeah that Paul Desmond is a masterpiece. I’m not saying there’s nothing to hdrbie from transcriptions, but you’d be much better off working on technique, understanding harmony, and developing your own voice. Too often, I disagree with the voicings and it’s also a very tough balance to notate something in a legible form rhythm-wise, whilst getting across the swing or lilt of a phrase that is played well behind the beat.


This was most evident Sunday.

I’m gradually trying to transcribe all of Herbie’s back-catalogue from that era Musicale Gold Member Registered: Obviously I aspire to having the ability and command of music that Herbie does so that I could view things on a much more general plane – rhythmically, harmonically etc.

I am missing the other elements of the bigger picture as you said – but am I a better player for studying Herbie’s music in such detail? The key to all Herbie solos or any other legendary jazz pianist, for that matter is that not only do you have to find the notes, you have to nail the feel and the dynamics, the phrasing too.

Nice of you to share your stuff here with all of of us.
