January 2017 update: site migrated to aws, after I had to fire the less-than-worthless bluehost. Sorry for the down time. And seriously, friends don’t let friends do business with bluehost. They are horrible. Godaddy is better, and they’re terrible!
I’m a player, singer and bandleader in Austin, Texas. My jazz transcriptions page has gotten a lot of hits from jazz players and students from around the world. Please enjoy and learn from my transcriptions.
Please do not embed my transcriptions in other web sites (i.e. don’t upload my PDFs to other sites without explicit permission) – link here instead.
