VISITATION – Sam Jones on Paul Chambers

Here is Sam Jones’ interpretation of the classic Paul Chambers tune Visitation. I transcribed this version from the 1978 Sam Jones album, aptly titled Visitation. It’s a great album altogether, featuring Bob Berg, Ronnie Mathews & Al Foster, and a handful of Tom Harrell tunes. Sam Jones makes some slight changes to the melody (which is doubled by sax) and substitutes some sweet alternate changes during the solos.

The original Paul Chambers version, including his solo, is available in The Music of Paul Chambers; a book of transcriptions by Jim Stinnett.
