Transcription: Buck Clayton’s Solo from Charlie Christian’s 1940 “Ad Lib Blues”

I love this song. I’ve used it in my dance classes for years. I has the nicest feel, and of course it would… the rhythm section is Basie’s rhythm section. This solo is a masterful, bluesy lesson.

Personnel in this recording:

Charlie Christian (guitar) Freddie Green (guitar) Count Basie (piano) Buck Clayton (trumpet) Lester Young (t sax) Walter Page (bass) Jo Jones (drums)
