He’s Dead Too – Jerry Bergonzi – Lady Bird contrafact

Below is a transcription of the melody to “He’s Dead Too“, a tune by Jerry Bergonzi.  The tune is a contrafact of Tadd Dameron’s tune “Lady Bird” (see also: “Half Nelson“).  “He’s Dead Too” is from the Alex Riel album “Unriel” which is a pretty solid album, featuring Mike Stern on guitar, Eddie Gomez on bass, Michael Brecker and Jerry Bergonzi alternating on sax, and Niels Lan Doky on piano.  Enjoy!
