Free PDF of the Month! (September)- “Now’s The Time” as played by the great Terry Pollard.
This is a transcription of her first two choruses on the F blues “Now’s The Time” (Charlie Parker). The recording is from a TV show appearance she made in 1956 as a member of the Terry Gibbs Quartet. It’s a great bebop burner, complete with wonderful arpeggios using flat 9ths, augmented shapes, and solid rhythmic phrasing.
This etude is a sample from my “Killer Jazz Vibes Book” – if you like it, please consider purchasing the whole book (over 200 pages!). Thanks! – Tim
