Saxophonist Curtis Swift was encouraged to transcribe solos by Matt Otto. Matt told him that transcribing would be good for his ears. By now Curtis' ears must be amazing because he has transcribed almost 1600 saxophone solos.

Curtis' transcriptions are accurate and very clear. You can buy individual solos for fifty cents per page directly from his Saxsolos.com website.

Here are a few sample solos from Curtis' site:

Impressions- Trane, Impressions (32 pages!!)
Impressions mp3

Boston Bernie- Dexter Gordon, Long Tall Dexter

Is this the fellow that played with the amazing Tony Janflone Jr. in Pittsburgh?
