Philly Joe with Art Pepper (Drum Transcription)

For jazz lovers this month I’ll share two transcriptions from the work of Philly Joe Jones with two great jazz musicians…

Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section (Contemporary/Original Jazz Classics, 1957) is a legendary album, despite the physical shape and possible exaggerations Art Pepper created his milestone, with the support of Miles Davis’ rhythm section.


  • Art Pepper – alto saxophone
  • Red Garland – piano
  • Paul Chambers – bass
  • Philly Joe Jones – drums

From the first track “You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To” (original composition by Cole Porter) I transcribed the drum accompaniment on the head (where Philly Joe uses the brushes) and the first chorus of the saxophone solo. Here’s the download link, enjoy.

  1. Hi Francesco

    I really enjoy your blog and especially these transcriptions. I have a question for you regarding drumsticks for jazz as I am currently trying out a whole bunch until I find one that suits me. I was just curious to hear your thoughts and see what drumsticks you use for jazz?

    Thanks so much,
