Tony Williams on Blue Note, 1963–64

After Paul Motian, Roy Haynes and Elvin Jones, my favorite drummer is Tony Williams, particularly during his teenage years. Here are 8 pages of transcriptions of his accompaniment on various recordings on Blue Note from the years 1963–64, including Grachan Moncur III “Evolution,” Herbie Hancock “Empyrean Isles,” and Eric Dolphy’s “Out To Lunch,” all great examples of his approach from that era.
