Transcription- Justin Faulkner trading 8th's on Teo


Platinum Member
Here's a transcription of Faulkner's tradings in the tune Teo from Branford Marsalis latest release. These trades are not incredibly crazy but they swing so *(&%$ hard and are just so deliciously tasty I had to run off and transcribe them as soon as I heard them. They are very much in the bebop tradition, some serious Max and Philly Joe channeling here. I really like how Justin plays with the quarter note triplets. Anyways, I hope you enjoy and any thoughts would be welcome!

just got back from seeing this band.
the whole band killed - especially Justin Faulkner. It's hard to believe he's only 21.
