Playing “Moanin'”

Playing "Moanin'"
We’ve reached a point in the course where I’d like you to be able to play a tune on your own, if necessary, all the way through. The tune is “Moanin’” by pianist Bobby Timmons. And I’ll play it to you first and then we’ll discuss it. 1,2,3,4,1.

I play a solo piano transcription I have produced for the blues-inflected piece “Moanin’”.

You can download the “Moanin” chart in PDF format at the bottom of this step.
