Do you know of Earl? Such an amazing player. Sadly died way too young. I got to meet him and hang on a couple occasions. He was such a cool guy. I love his tenor tone too.I agree! Earl Seymour was amazing!
If I end up writing them out, yes, but I normally commit them to memory.PS Will you share any solos you transcribe ?
For that, I suggest taking a listen to the album Speak Low by Lucia Cadotsch.
