Have any of you ever bought the Cannonball Adderley transcriptions by Doc Stewart?
http://www.cannonballjazz.com/home.htm

His coverage of CA's work is pretty impressive!

I am considering getting them if anyone has any comments about them....but am a little worried about the shipping costs to Japan?

Comments? Suggestions?

Julian "Cannonball" Adderley Collection (Artist Transcriptions) By Tim Price


The book has 24 solo transcriptions and performance notes, including: Dat Dere * Love for Sale * Freddie Freeloader * Limehouse Blues * The Way You Look Tonight * Scotch and Water * Jeannine * All Blues * and a full IN DEPTH interview I did with Nat Adderley in person.

Check it. The publisher pays song royalties and copyrights- which is the right thing to do.

HTH:)

Thanks Tim, I didn't know you did a book of his transcriptions! And you should do the other books! I will soon have your book in hand ;) By the way, is there a CD with it?

Kelly, thank..I have already checked out this site too.

Now, back to the original question..anyone?

Tim, I have been listening to CA so much lately...I feel like I could devote years to learning his solos- just beyond my comprehension at times. Wonderful.

Firstly, I have A couple of Tim Price books including his excellent Cannonball transcription book.

I also have Doc Stewart's volumes. The books do cost a fair bit to ship but I think they are worth it. Incidentally, the shipping is usually exactly the same cost that it actually costs to send, not some inflated shipping and handling cost.

The solos are well transcribed and well set out. Doc Stewart prints these things as they are ordered. He doesn't have people do it for him so it usually takes him a few days to get it in the mail.

The books are quite heavy
