Bye Bye Blackbird Score
Does anyone know where I could find a score for the recording of Bye Bye Blackbird on John Clayton's Super Bass album? I know it was live, so there may not be one at all... But if anyone has any ideas, I need it for a school project!
I think you have answered your own question - this was a live, improvised performance and there wouldn't have been any score for this tune, which is a very well-known standard and any Jazz pro would know the chords and the melody to this and have them memorised.
If you want to find the chords and melody - it's in many Real Books or Fake Books and I'm sure you could find this online. I did a quick google search and many lead sheets appeared - this was the first :
I'm pretty Clayton would tell you to transcribe it, without any software aids. Just listen and play what you hear on the bass.
that score is right, but add
Gm7 C7 I Fmaj in bar 2,3
Am7 in bar 4
D7 I Gm7 bar 10, 11
and bar 17 - 20 should be
F7 I E7 I Eb7 I D7
and your home!
