Here’s another ‘how to play’ video for the series: The reason I will attempt to articulate! This was most evident Sunday.

Transcriptions: “Solitude” – As Played By Herbie Hancock and Dave Holland | Open Music Library

Hi Tom I don’t know if I’ve done this quoting thing properly. I think we all have to focus on the specifics of anything in order to grasp the rungs on the way to what we’re trying to achieve. I granscriptions love your transcriptions. They come through my intuition while on a bandstand. BRW The key to all Hebie 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.

Keep trsnscriptions up, I am waiting for Spank-a-Lee. Never got around to that one. These broke very often and I needed a lot of replacement tines within the 1st 2 years of ownership.


Rhythm is greatly understudied in my opinion. When musicians solo, they are most definitely not hearing the same rhythms that another person is hearing.

I’ve got a very busy period coming up but I’ll try my hardest to keep the videos flowing. It’s all good in other words – transcription and learning from your inspirations is a must, in my opinion.

Switch to Threaded Mode.


There might have been a Rhodes in the back but he didn’t play it. Amazing musician and person. Can’t wait to see transcrptions. The melodic rhythms of a solo, are encased within the greater context of the groove of the rhythm section. Yes that’s a great version with Herbie on Rhodes – those early silvertop Fender Rhodeses had such a different tone in comparison to the mid 70’s.


They played much of his earlier fusion stuff, ie Chameleon, Watermelon Man, but that hanclck consisted of quoting the head then going off into wonderful solos and ensemble playing loosely based on the melody. Having to transcribe Charlie Parker solos was a scarry thought for a 19 year old kid.

Too often you see note-for-note videos, where the transcriber just plays the notes and completely ignores the time feel. But the first time I believe is at the 7: The solo handock gives a hint at what rhythmic world the player was choosing from.

Herbie doesn’t have to put any thought into II-V-Is, that’s for sure!

People go on about the model ‘E’ hire Rhodes being one of the greatest ever examples but in my opinion, the Rhodes sound from Herbie’s mid 70’s albums is the greatest ever recorded Rhodes sound. In the ’80s article, he seemed to be talking about a particular Rhodes he’d had for a while, and didn’t dispute the interviewer’s assertion that it was a prototype.

Don’t have much to add regarding transcriptions, and I can appreciate the hard work that goes into them, but I doubt that Herbie ever played the same song the same way twice. Also helped taking Jazz Piano and Theory Comp too. None of the above takes one iota away from the very good, helpful work you have done and continue to do.

Who knows where the main touring Rhodes es? Totally agree about studying and training hard. He’d catch a rhythmic figure with Herbie, then they’d look at each other and smile, like they were having a conversation. Learning someone else’s solo note for note defeats the whole idea of jazz, which should be a spontaneous dialogue between the players.


Hi Chris – many thanks for the reply – I would have given out my Actual Proof solo transcription but at the moment I’m in the process of investigating publishing and copyright for Herbie’s 70’s songs because I plan to release the transcriptions properly if it proves to be viable.

I know he had a prototyp MKV 88 in his studio too I’m gradually trying to transcribe all of Herbie’s back-catalogue from that era Herbie Hancock exact, note-for-note transcriptions on Rhodes [ Re: I have played with a very large number of equally diversified musicians over my career. Vince is perhaps the best ensemble drummer I’ve ever seen. Thank you for this. I have no clue how to have access to this information; whether a church organ or a Stradivari or a Rhodes.

The solo part is saying Here’s ‘Sun Touch’ just in case you’re transcriptinos in figuring out a particular voicing or lick.

The thing about Herbie is he doesn’t look back, always forward transcriptionns, willing to try new things, expand his playing into new areas. This aspect of music is seldom addressed. Also when are we going to see Actual Proof and Shiftless Shuffle in a video or book? The rhythm is critical 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.
