Oscar Pettiford Bass Solo Transcription - The Man I Love

This transcription is for one of the first EVER recorded Oscar Pettiford bass solo. It was featured on a Coleman Hawkins Record called Classic Tenors in 1943. Oscar was only 21 yrs old at the time, and he blazed thru that 206 bpm song. This is my rendition of his solo with my 1963 Fender P-Bass with flat-wound strings. Below you will find my transcription of his bass solo in both standard notation and with TAB. Enjoy!
