    Hi y'all. I mostly visit the EB side, but I am looking for specific jazz transcriptions, and since the more professional musicians can be found here, I thought I'd have more chance if I asked it in the DB section.

    My brother is making a paper on Miles Davis, and for that he needs transcriptions of Miles Davis. More specificly;

    *Deception
    *Budo
    *Move

    (All Birth of the Cool)

    Of course, if you can direct me towards other Miles Davis transcriptions, you are most welcome :)

    Thanks in advance.

    It depends exactly what you mean by transcriptions. There is a book published recently by Hal Leonard that contains recreated concert scores of all the tunes played on the Birth of the Cool album. They are not precisely what is played on the record but are actually created from the original scores and parts.

    Melody + chords usually = lead sheet

    Budo is in:

    The Real Little Ultimate Jazz Fake Book - Hal Leonard
    The Ultimate Jazz Fake Book - Hal Leonard - Herb Wong
    The Real Jazz Classics Fake Book - Hal Leonard
    [Hal Leonard] Real Book Vol 2
    [Old] Real Book Vol 2

    Move is in:

    A Jazz Chord Book - Lionel Grigson
    [Hal Leonard] Real Book Vol 2
    [Old] Real Book Vol 2

    Deception is not in any fake book I know of but it is in the Hal Leonard concert scores book I mentioned.
