Mo' Better Blues Solo

Listen to the recording of Mo’ Better Blues by Branford Marsalis and Terrance Blanchard. Try to learn the melody by ear. If you know your pentatonic scale this will be easy. The melody is made up entirely of notes from the major pentatonic scale. The original key of the recording is Gb which is not a favorite for sax players typically. I’ve included a backing track to practice along with but I’ve transposed it to Concert F.
