Transcription Page:     I Found a New Baby  —  second take  ( -1  master)

 



C&A:

This master take of I Found a New Baby contains another virtually perfect solo by Charles, beginning with a paraphrase of the 4-bar intro riffs.

Some of the highlights:  At measure 8, he plays the same A7 lick (except for the last note) that he played on the last bar of the alternate take—both are one A7 measure following an F measure.  Bar 17 has a straight-time (no syncopation) sequence that CC used fairly often.  And that A7 figure at bar 24 is ingenious.

The entire solo merits thorough study.
