    Jazz comping for Alone together

    I don't know if this is interesting for you'll at IBM, but anyway:

    My interpretation of what the piano is doing on the Aebersold recording (vol 41). I've tried to write something playable on guitar for the same bit. Hope this is useful. It's still a tricky one for me at least.

    One thing that facinates me with the comping on this recording is the melodic patterns that are created by the voicings chosen. Interesting example imho.

    BTW: The chords indicated is the chords that you will find in a real book (these are from Aebersold). The voicings that the comper on this recording is using is loosely based on these chords. I have not attempted to notate the actual chords and voicings actually played.

    Enjoy.
