Lee Morgan Month: Jazz Trumpet Transcription- I’m Old Fashioned

Here is a transcription of Lee Morgan’s solo on I’m Old Fashioned from John Coltrane’s seminal album Blue Train. The tune is the only standard on the album. This solo was tricky to get down on paper due to Lee Morgan’s signature feel: he plays with a lot of rubato, often pulling  an entire phrase back behind the beat and using the next one as spring board to catch up.
