Weather Report's (Mr. Gone, 1978) take on Wayne Shorter's "Pinocchio" differs from the earlier version on Miles Davis' Nefertiti (1968). Weather Report's version doesn't include any solos, except for the fade-in improvisation before the repeated melody choruses.
Also, the Weather Report's recording has two extra measures of B13#11 at the end of the head. Miles' take is 18 measures in length, and Weather Report's two measures longer.
Jaco doubles much of the melody on his bass. The melody is played to a degree in unison, so the given chord changes actually refer to the original version.

Best, Ville

Nothing is showing up on the page. Is the Weather Report chart still available?

Thanks

Hello,I just recently saw and sight read (and I mean read, without a piano) many of your very nice and in my opinion quite accurate transcriptions on this lovely page...I'm a pretty good transcriber myself, but have had very limited time to do as much as I'd like to in that regard over the last 7 years because of pressing family commitments,and being busy touring the world and constantly learning new music for the the artist that I work with.
When I have time,I do what I can to take tunes off that are important to me....That being said,I have to say that I'm a fan of your work, and have a request (the I'll gladly pay you for) for a transcription of Joe Zawinuls tune "Directions" ( and I don't mean the transposed Miles Davis funk version in E ,I wrote that out about 10 minutes) I mean the Early Weather Report version in the original key of B,with the intro etc.....
As of now, there is no written version of this tune out there on the net etc..... Would love to hear from you.....If you don't do it,I'll just end up doing it myself when I can find the time.....
Best wishes in 2017,
David K Mathews...

Hi David

That sounds interesting! I'll get back to you when I get home from work.

Best, Ville

I had a long and exhausting day at work yesterday, but I managed to pull myself together and wrote down the introduction off the recording (Forecast: Tomorrow). I also wrote down the melody of the A section. I will post the sketch here once I'm back home.

Best wishes, Ville

Here ya go! This is a rather hasty transcription of the introduction and the following A section. Please check it for possible errors, and feel free to continue it as you like. I look forward to get an eyeful of your supplemental work here. ;)

Best wishes from Ville

P.S. I enclose the score here both as a PDF file and a Sibelius file (version 8.4.2).

Hi Ville,

After David's request, and all of the trouble you went to too meet his needs, I am quite surprised and shocked to see he has not even shown the decency and manners to respond and thank you!

He mentions he is an accomplished transcriber and that the introduction to DIRECTIONS took him a mere 10 minutes to complete. Quite frankly, I don't believe that statement for an instant! - for a variety of reasons.

Best,

Paul David Seaman

Many thanks for your sympathy. Indeed, it's a pity that such a few people make effort to post transcriptions on this site - and it's a drag that some folks just seem to exploit the effort without giving thanks.

Do you know if there is a similar forum for shared jazz transcriptions, which has more participants contributing to the community discourse?

My best, Ville

Hi Ville,

I know of no other site as wealthy in transcriptions as this one.

To request a transcription and then choose to not thank the uploader is pretty dismal. Not only do people expect something for nothing but they can't even be bothered to show any gratitude towards receiving it!

I wanted to ask you, please: are you the founder of this website? I ask simply because you have made a far greater contribution of PDFs than any other member here!

Best,

Paul

Thanks for the link Villie.

No, I have not heard of him before?

If I may ask, why have you gone to the trouble of uploading so many of your transcriptions, please? Don't you mind giving them away to the world for free?

Paul

Many thanks.
