Donna Lee

Hello Everybody! I've been looking for a copy of Donna Lee for tenor sax. I've only been able to find copies for piano and my transposition wasn't accurate.

        Hey dj, I've transcribed Donna Lee for tenor, and I believe I have it in Finale format. If you'd like, I could send it to you. Drop me a line on my email at saxmachine777@hotmail.com It lies a bit goofy for tenor on a few passages, but it really sounds great once you get the larger interval jumps down, and it helps with interval control over some of the more difficult jumps on the horn. That omnibook is worth it though (despite the fact that I, for some reason, have neglected to buy it for several years now). George

          Thanks for the help. I got the Charlie Parker Omnibook for Christmas. I'm also trying to find Isfahan for tenor sax, I can't find a method book with a transcription.

          Why not transcribe it?

          If you have the piano part, just transpose it, it'll help more than finding the music and reading off the page. But buy the omnibook anyway, it's an essential.

          I second Seano's suggestion . . . you will learn a lot by transcribing. Years ago, there weren't a lot of transcriptions on the market, and a number of great players cut their teeth by playing along with records and transcribing. It can also be a lot of fun . . . I remember my summer between high school and college where I learned about 12 years of Tom Scott solos by playing along with the records (and subsequently learning the style as well). Best of luck!
