Piano Voicings by Bertha Hope
FULL SCORE [JRTS]*
A combination of the arrangements on the two recordings shown above, this arrangement features two horn parts that move freely from unsisons to two-part harmonies and back as well as detailed rhythm section parts including piano voicings by the foremost expert on Elmo's music, his soulmate, pianist Bertha Hope.
SOLOS: These changes are very playable, with many II-Vs and A sections that stay mostly in F. The bridge goes to B-flat and returns to F via A and G, giving these common changes a nice harmonic detour.
* Jazz Repertory Transcription Series include chord voicings, bass lines, drum fills and cued melody lines in rhythm section parts.
Charlie Rouse/Soul Mates (Uptown UP27.34)
ELMO HOPE (1923-1967). A classically trained pianist with technique rivaling that of his childhood friend Bud Powell and a composer of music whose inventiveness and complexity approaches that of Thelonious Monk, Elmo Hope is only now beginning to achieve the recognition he deserves because of recent reissues of his albums and the efforts of his soulmate and muse, Bertha Hope, an excellent pianist and composer as well. Although his career was circumscribed by drug problems, he recorded several albums as a leader with sidemen including John Coltrane, Paul Chambers, Blue Mitchell, Frank Foster and Jimmy Heath. His compositions have been recorded by Clifford Brown (with whom he played), Art Blakey, Charlie Rouse, James Spaulding, Lou Donaldson, Harold Land, T.S. Monk, Ralph Moore and others.
