  • October 09, 2012 Solos issue

    The solos are not complete and there are some where it misses choruses in the between (1st to 3rd). It should at least be on the book description...

  • November 25, 2010 Dexter Gordon - Jazz Saxophone Solo's

    I have noted that some of the transcriptions are transposed to different keys than the solo performances on the recording cited ie. Soy Califa. This makes it a bit difficult.
