You can transpose tab while playing alto...Impressive!

I can't even read a concert lead sheet while playing tenor. :bluewink:

It's in the Hal Leonard Jazz Play Along Series Vol 94, Ray -- Music from the Motion Picture, along with some other classic songs of his.

The Bb chart is in G and begins: /G Bb G / Bb G/ Bb G F nat/ G F nat D/ D G G F nat /G Bb/ D2 D2(tied) C / D2 Bb G / ......

That should help you get started.

You might consider getting the recording and learning it by ear. This tune is not particularly difficult to learn that way. Especially if you are interested in learning the 'signature' solo. The notes are fairly easy to find by ear. The only tricky part is to play it with rhythmic accuracy. And by listening/playing along, you will pick up certain nuances that can't be notated on sheet music.
