Strollin’ – Horace Silver

Hello again.  This is quickly turning into a Horace Silver transcription website – but what can you do, that’s what I’m into right now.  Below is a lead sheet to the Horace Silver tune Strollin’ from the album Horace Scope.  The album features some great trumpet work by the always-fantastic Blue Mitchell.  Check out the whole thing if you get the chance.  Enjoy!

 

The Kicker – Joe Henderson

Last post of the night – still with the Horace Silver theme.  Below is a lead sheet to Joe Henderson’s “The Kicker” as played on the wonderful Horace Silver album Song For My Father.   The notations at the bottom of the staff are the rhythm section hits – I know it muddles up the lead sheet a little bit, but I couldn’t think of a better way to convey this information and keep it to one page.  Enjoy!
