i’ve found a new baby – don byron transcription

This is another old transcription from Don Byron’s fantastic record Ivey-Divey. The record is a tribute to Lester Young (it was initially going to be to John Coltrane – until he realised how much Coltrane was influenced by Young!), particularly to Young’s trio with Nat King Cole and Buddy Rich (also very worth checking out). This whole record burns throughout, and is also a lot of fun. Byron really manages to let go of the baggage of “jazz clarinet”, and turns it into a machine. There aren’t many who can play it with the power that he does!

Transcription is in Bb. Give me a shout if you want it in another key.
