    It depends whether you are looking for the first version of ECLA from the album of the same title, or if you are looking for the version that Kurt plays on "Standards Trio: Reflections". The first version is in the Mel Bay book (which by the way is also available through our own store here: but the 2nd version is not out in an official transcription yet.

    I don't have a chart of this song, but would like to make one at some point. I would encourage you (original poster) to transcribe at least some of it... I find transcribing really rewarding. Not saying using a chart or book is bad... using a pre-written chart is the quickest way to learn a solo, and working on a solo is a killer way to push your chops. But when you transcribe something on your own you grow in a lot of different aspects musically... your ears, chops and comprehension of rhythms/reading will all benefit. Just my 2 cents.

    Holy shit! The entire first two minutes of that arrangement is an EXACT transcription of the intro Kurt played at a gig on November 4, 2005!!! Amazing!!! The only reason I noticed is because I transcribed that intro about 5 years ago.

    It's also the intro from The Standards Trio album!!

    Ohhh right. A little less obscure of a transcription then. Hahah.

    After reading this thread (and watching that cool video!) I decided to tackle transcribing the intro from the "Reflections" album. The rubato middle section was a bit of a guess to notate rhythmically, but I think it's readable:

    I just registered in order to say thanks, Poparad; that transcription is great!
