I want to start learning to do takedowns/transcriptions of jazz combos and big bands by listening to MP3
or CD and then checking my work against the score.
Can somebody please point me to some sources that have reasonably priced jazz scores which also have
a corresponding sound file from which to transcribe (e.g. MP3 or CD) ?
Most of the ones I've seen cost $30-40 a pop- not a very cost effective way to learn. And unfortunately
I don't have access to a music school/library.
I've found a couple books on jazz arranging that have CDs but generally they are exercises (llike section
writing for the saxes, etc.). I need to start working through 10 or so "for real" charts to get some transcribing
and ear training chops.
Thanks for any help !
