That was really nice.I transcribed the Stacey Kent recording with Jim Tomlinson's tenor sax and then made a BiaB backing track with the same sort of guitar backing that Colin Oxley provided for her. Because you wouldn't want to hear me trying to sing like Stacey, I transposed her vocal line onto soprano sax.
The guitar backing on its own sounded a little bare so I tried adding some drums and vibraphone but couldn't decide which mix I prefer. Let me know what you think.
It Might As Well Be Spring - Rhys sop + tenor Mix 1 with trio.mp3 - Box
This was the first vocal that I have tried to transcribe and it's quite a challenge capturing the exact start and end of some syllables and some of the vocal inflections are different to what a saxophonist would probably use.
If anyone would like to see the transcriptions I did, here they are:
It Might As Well Be Spring - Stacey Kent & Jim Tomlinson V5 - Soprano Sax (Vocal line).pdf - Box
It Might As Well Be Spring - Stacey Kent & Jim Tomlinson V5 - Jim Tomlinson (Tenor sax).pdf - Box
I’ll also say that I preferred the guitar only backing.
Thanks also for sharing your transcriptions.
This is something I haven’t done much of at all.
