Roy Haynes’ solos on “A Singing Song” and “Careful” 1968, 1976

3 pages of transcriptions of Roy Haynes’ solos “A Singing Song” and “Careful,” (mis-lableled “Peau Deuce” on the recording and transcription) recorded with Gary Burton on “Country Roads and Other Places,” 1968 and “Times Square,” 1976.

I’m putting these two solos together in the same post, because they share a few similarities: they were both recorded with Gary Burton, they are both improvised to bass accompaniment, they both happen to be my favorite Haynes solos, and they both make effective and dramatic use of the device of alternating duple and triple subdivisions.
