Been looking for a transcription of this beautiful jazz ballad for years. Composed by Django's son, Babik, and dedicated to his brother Lousson. Check it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fosy3HnoifA If anyone has it, many thanks

Excellent. Cheers Ville. The spacey intro (you left out) I'm hearing as LH chord: EAbCDG, then LH moves to: EbAbC#Eb (maybe extend with AbC) & RH plays, as sequential notes on top: F,Bb,Eb,Ab,C, then LH chord: CEAbBb, (RH plays as sequential notes on top C,F#,B,E,Ab with LH chord moving to BFAbB as RH hits the top Ab), then LH chord:Bmin7 (and RH plays sequentially on top E,A,D,F#), then LH chord EAbCEb (and RH plays sequentially on top Bb,D,Ab,C,E). The intro chords are difficult to hear...mine needs correcting I think........The intro reminds me of Jerry Goldsmith's "Revelation" from Planet of the Apes 68 with its suspended feel.....interesting analysis of those chords here: http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=23442

The melody, which is played on a fretless bass here, is rhytmically freely interpreted, and therefore the transcription is just an estimate. I assume that the bass has an extra upper string to reach those high notes. Also, the chord names are simplified and donít include upper extensions that are played on the recording.
