Freddie Freeloader – Wynton Kelly’s piano solo

This solo is near and dear to my heart – it’s the first solo I ever transcribed when I started learning jazz piano.  This is Wynton Kelly’s piano solo on the Miles Davis tune “Freddie Freeloader” from the incredible album Kind of Blue.  The tune is a Bb blues with a slightly different turnaround – it goes to an Ab7(#11) chord for the last 2 bars.  Enjoy!

  1. Thanks so much, not only for the excellent transcription, but also for all the tips on great underappreciated jazz to check out. Especially enjoying the Horace Silver, Eddie Harris, and Freddie Hubbard. Only real musicians know the real stuff. You clearly do. It was a pleasant to surprise to happen on your site while looking for a transcription of Wynton’s solo from “Freddie”. Thanks again!
