Little Blue Man

Recently I’ve been really enjoying Kenny Werner’s trio album Beat Degeneration, featuring bassist Johannes Weidenmueller and drummer Ari Hoenig.  Kenny’s intricate compositions are deeply rooted in jazz, but they avoid clichés and frequently digress into unpredictable harmonic and rhythmic areas to create a true “sound of surprise”.  This makes them a challenge to transcribe, but here’s my attempt at the opening track, “Little Blue Man”.
