Despite a tragically short career, the amount of music Fats Navarro was able to record in just over a two year period in the late 1940’s is nothing short of astounding. Furthermore, the influence of this legendary be-bopper and his big, fat, brassy sound can be heard in the playing of Clifford Brown, Lee Morgan, Roy Hargrove, and many more.
Here you will find note-for-note transcriptions of Fats Navarro’s solos from his entire significant output, complete with chord symbols, transcribed by the one-and-only Erik Veldkamp.
Navarro’s playing is essential for anyone looking to explore the emergence of be-bop, and we think that this collection is a vital addition to the library of any serious jazz trumpeter.
