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.

Here’s another ‘how to play’ video for the series: Totally agree about studying and training hard. 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. Page 3 of 3. This was most evident Sunday. That is the plane that Herbie operates on. 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.

BRW 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. But the first time I believe is at the 7: Their inner experience of a “rhythmic bed” is much more hidden or covert. When you “get” that rhythmic code, you will have a ball with all manner of freedom How do you verify perhaps the most difficult part of the music- the melodic rhythms? Hancocm especially with Herbie’s Rhodes stuff.


Having said that, I’m always thorough transcriptiona all the comping too, not just doing the melodic solo lines. 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? They come through my intuition while on a bandstand.

A Horizontal Search, by Kevin Sun: Herbie Hancock on “Riot”

This aspect transcriptiosn music is seldom addressed. The part I have in mind occurs a couple of times. Learning someone else’s solo note for note defeats the whole idea of jazz, which should be a spontaneous dialogue between the players. I have no clue how to have access to this information; whether hnacock church organ or a Stradivari or a Rhodes.

I was particularly taken by the interplay between the musicians, bouncing ideas off each other, exchanging smiles and acknowledgements – especially between Vince and Herbie when they were comping behind herbif other solos. And listening to Master’s play, speaks to me Yeah that Paul Desmond is a masterpiece.

Also when are we going to see Actual Proof and Shiftless Shuffle in a video or book? Nice of you to trascriptions your stuff here with all of of us.

It’s always great to meet other Herbie aficionados!

As I always say though, the value is in doing the transcription yourself – it’s like musical archeology! I’ve got a very busy period coming up but I’ll try my hardest to keep the videos flowing. Amazing musician and person.

The rhythm is critical Honestly, Herbie looked like a kids having a great time throughout the concert. When you say a stock Rhodes, I don’t know.

It is interesting to observe the relationship between instrument maker and the development of music. None of the above takes one iota away from the very good, helpful work you have done and continue to do. 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.

There are many factors at play, not least the musician playing it plus the Harrison console used to record an album like Sunlight, but surely that particular Rhodes that Herbie used must still be one of the best sounding in the world. 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.

Add to your Watched Users. I’m gradually trying to transcribe all of Herbie’s back-catalogue from that era Resolution 88 Senior Member Registered: One of these eye openers is this realization that tells me. The thing about Herbie is he doesn’t look back, always forward, willing to try new things, expand his playing into new areas.


Thank you for this. The melodic rhythms of a solo, are encased within the greater context of the herbbie of the rhythm section. Thanks I don’t take it as such, I think we’re both of the same opinion!
