Thanks for the kind words. I'll be putting the sheet music for my transcription on my website soon so I'll post a link when it's done, just in case anybody fancies playing it.

Excellent playing and I'm looking forward to seeing your transcription. Have you done any more solos by him ? His solo on "Way Back Home" recorded live with Steve Gadd is on my list of transcriptions to get round to.

Next time maybe you could wear one of Ronnie Cuber's classic jackets with the huge shoulder pads. :)

This is the first one of his I’ve done. I’ve loved it for years and always meant to get around to it but there are so many hours in a day, right? Well suddenly there are a few more so I got it done.

if I could carry off one of the jackets I definitely would.

I’m just listening to Way Back Home and now that I know that it’s a Wilton Felder tune, I’m all the more intrigued. I love his playing.

This one...is followed by a drum solo that showcases a drumming talent without letting the tune go off the boil huh.

Bravo. You hit that one out of the park and it was smoking hot!
I don't have anything in my body that can move that fast. Hell. Some things don't even work anymore.

This is the one with the great shoulder pads and an even better bari solo (I think). At least it's the one I would/will transcribe.


Fabulous bands and performances, both.

He’s not bad is he. I also like the fact that he proves that low A baritones really can work as a soloists instrument (I also play a low A Mkvi).

I’m really enjoying the solo on Gadd & Friends ‘Live at Voce’

Maybe we could each transcribe our own favourite solo and share them. I've been doing a few baritone transcriptions recently and should do this one of Ronnie Cuber's.

His playing on George Benson's 1966 album Cookbook is also excellent. Any recommendations for other good albums of his to check out ?

Yeah, great idea. Maybe we’ll find out that he’s a charlatan who just keeps peddling the same stuff?

Ive been listening to an album called In A New York Minute which is good. I’m also waiting for a vinyl copy of Cuber Libre to be delivered.
