    Does anyone have transcriptions of the bass lines for How Insensitive and Meditation from Aebersold Vol. 98, Jobim, or know where I can get them? I am working on it, but I need to get my bossa chops up fast for a jazz gig.
    I bought the book assuming they'd have the scores, but they're basically just chord charts with the CD... and I already have the chord charts! It's the approaches to fills I'm after.

    There are multiple recordings, with variations, out there for both of the tunes. Knowing which artist you like or which version you need to learn might yield better results.

    Look for Jared Plane's bass instructional video for "How Insensitive" on YouTube.

    Also note alternative spelling "Insensatez" when searching.

    for most bossas chord charts will get you there: for those two tunes, specifically = chord charts will get you there! everyone is going to play a fill their own way (just listen to a few recordings!)...so if you're in a 'panic' you may be sweating it too much. you also might look at someone's bass cover of the tune(s) for ideas/'permission'.

    good luck on your jazz gig! :thumbsup:

    Me? Sweat it too much? How well you know me! Yeah, it’s heavy listening time.
    This jazz thing is so much fun, I am learning so much. My comfort zone is a distant speck on the horizon, but we’re getting rebooked, so I’m doing a reasonable job, I guess .. But gotta do better!
