Do you mean writing out other people's solos, I've never done that, my ear is pretty slow.

Not necessarily only solos.

Maybe Jazz Pianist - Aleks has some he'd like to share.

As piano players, don't you guys just simply hook up the MIDI and send it to a program?

I've never done that either, I have some books that have Herbie and Miles solos written out that I look at some times, but mostly for my own solos I just use what I know about scales and chords and just build my own solos. Since I play a lot of RnB jazz, its only natural that a lot of cliches common with that genre will show up, riffs from guys like Jimmy Smith, Herbie, etc.

I transcribed Wynton Kelley's solo on Freddie Freeloader, but I'm pretty sure only I can read it.

I plan to transcribe more, and more legibly, but now I'm mostly looking for solos or tunes that are interesting enough to transcribe.

I was dismissed from a try out very quickly once because I did not learn the piano accompaniment to this recording of "House in not a Home" exactly as the other pianist had played it on the recording. Shocked

Definitely not, needless to say, I'm a little bitter about that one Disapprove     ...but it is a nice song.
