Charlie Parker Saxophone Transcriptions with Articulations
These highly detailed transcriptions were done over several months using Transcribe! software. By slowing down the recording, it is possible to determine what types of articulations are being used. I have tried to represent Charlie Parker's unique bebop articulation techniques to the best of my ability. I believe that this visual representation of advanced bebop articulation techniques will help students of jazz saxophone reach higher levels of expression in less time. Have fun with these things!
