Transcription: intro by Art Taylor

This is Art Taylor's 8-measure intro from the tune Jackie-ing, from Thelonious Monk's 5x5. I'm working on a long, challenging Joey Baron transcription and needed a little palate-cleanser, that's all...

What he plays doesn't seem to be connected to the tune, particularly. Most of the action happens in the last half of the first phrase, and the middle of the second phrase, with a little set up into the the tune at the end. He bridges the phrases with running 8th notes on the cymbal, and accents on the & of 4 and on beat 2.
