    Tried my hand at a classic. As an uneducated rock player, I found the way the pentatonic melody works with the complex chord changes to be a huge wealth of education in addition to being completely genius. I transcribed the melody from the original Mingus version but of course I ended up being closer in vibe to the Jeff Beck version. I threw in my own solos for fun too. Feedback is always appreciated - thanks!!

    I really like what you did with that, particularly around 2:40. I expected something closer to the Beck version and was pleasantly surprised by your direction. Nicely done!

    is the only version I ever heard. Sounds great.

    Thanks Carl!
    By niche do you mean that it is so guitar-oriented, or just that it's far from the original bebop? I appreciate the feedback!
