Walking chords


In my quest ;) ...I came across this transcription on the Steve Khan's site

Jim Hall playing "walking" chords on My funny valentine :)

Interesting to note how the top notes, of the turn arounds in the first 4 bars, is kind of playing around the b5 of the c minor blues scale.
His way of staying musical while practically raping the song with chords i guess :D
No but joking aside... it really works well and he seems to be very attentive to what the solist is doing ofcourse.

And check out those voicings in the 2nd half of A2 ...very prretty !
If you know of more transcriptions of fast / interesting voicings please do share a link.
