Transcription: Philly Joe Jones — Hi Groove, Low Feedback

We'll continue light posting through this week, as I'm in the middle of a big booking push, and then heading to the coast. But here's an interesting Philly Joe Jones transcription, from Hank Mobley's Hi Groove, Low Feedback, from his Blue Note album Hank (or Hank Mobley Sextet, it says on the back of the sleeve).

The transcription covers just the intro and head. There's a little confusion during the first couple of measures of the tune— Philly Joe's opening fill appears to throw the bassist a bit; everyone else appears to be more or less where they're supposed to be. Several times Philly Joe accents on the hihat with his left hand while playing the ride cymbal with his right, so I've put the hihat part on the tom tom line when that happens.
