Hi Pete, I wonder if there is any chance of a backing track for "Night Train"

Thanks

Sorry, that won't be possible as there is no backing track - just the CD full version. It was recorded years ago and the multitrack has disappeared.

Thanks Peter for this wonderful backing track; I will try to work your solo with it ; special mention to your play with Adderley trill !!
By the way, it seems to me that after the theme the solo is 24 bars and after you play the theme pretty modified but not complete ; Where can I find the grid of the whole ?
Thank you again for this Cafe saxophone which is a great resource !

Curtis Swift of saxsolos.com has transcribed Pete's solo on Harlem Nocturne and sells it for $3.00 here. His transcriptions are very good.

Thank you for your confirmation; I have seen that you have done the solo using the B twice ; very interesting , enabling to use F and Bb blue scales for the player I am.

Well, not really. the soo is the same key and triplet feel, but is 12 bar not 8 bar. But yes, the solo is a reasonably basic blues. I'm not sure about a B♭ blues scale though, I would just think of F blues scale as a starting point.
