This is an incomplete transcription, for it lacks the solo section. The pianist's right hand voicings are limited to three notes, but you may extend them at will. The bass figure, which is doubled by pianist's left hand, lays a strong and active counter line to the melody played by a tenor saxophone. The song form is as follows: Head (A1 - A2 - B - A3); Tenor solo (C); Piano solo (C); Head (A1 - A2); Drum solo (B); Out-head (A3).

If there is anyone capable of writing down the solo section, I'd kindly ask for a copy of the transcription. All comments are welcome.

Best from Ville

Barnabass, thanks a heap for your effort, man! Your transcription looks right on target. The solo section is rhythmically rather challenging to master (incorporating alternating time signatures of 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4) although it sounds straightforward on the recording.

Its the bass line...that's how Eric is phrasing it...at least in the beginning. The last chord Bmaj7#5 is negotiable---Its more often than not a Bmaj7#11.
Best.
