Response to Lydia Britton's review comment!

Hello Lydia, I'd like to respond to your comment: "The only problem I have is that it is not fully accurate to the way Gary Burton played it in his 1960's recording." The transcription is 100% note-for-note accurate as far as notes are concern. The only liberty I allow myself to add was the dampening and pedaling in order to add clarity (melodically and harmonically) to the transcription. The transcriptions is from Gary Burton's "Alone at Last" studio version and NOT from the video performance circulation around the internet. Thank you for your comments. Errol Rackipov

Chega De Saudade-Vibraphone

Comments:

An incredibly piece of music. Truly, Errol Rackipov has done an excellent job as a transcriber and I love Burton's improvisation. It is very difficult, (Grade 6+) but I highly recommend it to any vibe soloist.

Chega De Saudade - Vibraphone transcription

Comments:

This is a wonderful piece of improvisation and just as well a wonderful transcription. This piece of music may be VERY challenging and, although it mentions no rating, I believe it to be a 6+. However, though it may be difficult, it is still totally worth it to learn this solo in my opinion. The only problem I have is that it is not fully accurate to the way Gary Burton played it in his 1960's recording. But none the less, great solo, great music. Highly recommended to skilled and experienced vibe soloists.
