Freddie Hubbard – Body and Soul reharmonization

This is my transcription of Freddie Hubbard’s reharmonization of the tune “Body and Soul” off of his album Here To Stay.  This fantastic album also features Cedar Walton, Reggie Workman, Philly Joe Jones, and Wayne Shorter.  Where the chord changes differ significantly from the original (bars 2, 5, and the first 4 bars of the bridge), the melody as played by Freddie has been loosely transcribed.  Otherwise, the stock melody has been inserted, as my main purpose in transcribing the tune is for the chord changes.  I encourage you to check out Mulgrew Miller’s reharmonization of the tune from the album With Our Own Eyes for comparison purposes.  Enjoy!

Freddie Hubbard – Lament For Booker

This is my transcription of the beautiful Freddie Hubbard Ballad “Lament For Booker” off of the fantastic album Hub-Tones.  This great album features Herbie Hancock, Reggie Workman, James Spaulding, and Clifford Jarvis.

I apologize that the chord symbols are a little cramped in a few places, especially the second line.  My intention is to keep the lead sheet at 4 or 5-bar lines and to keep the sheet limited to one page, and sometimes this means the readability suffers.
