Freddie Hubbard – Birdlike solo transcription

Below is a transcription of Freddie Hubbard’s trumpet solo on “Birdlike” as played on the 1961 Freddie Hubbard album “Ready For Freddie.”  Brian Lynch was talking about this solo at a masterclass a few weeks back, particularly about the value of taking the 2nd chorus through all 12 keys since it’s got so much language in it, so I thought I’d rip the solo.  I was struck by how often Freddie uses natural sevenths over dominant seventh chords – lots of E naturals on F7’s and A naturals on Bb7’s.  Enjoy!

The solo is also available in Bb here.
