Tones For Joan’s Bones – Chick Corea Piano Solo Transcription 3

Below is a transcription of Chick Corea’s piano solo on “Tones For Joan’s Bones” as played on the 1995 Christian McBride album “Number Two Express”.  I like the way Chick freely interpreted the melody on this track, so I included that as well.  There should be an analysis of the three solos to follow.
