He has not published it. My son figured it out note for note but he is a jazz player with a great ear with one year of classical training. So he plays it out at gigs but when I ask him to write it out he said...I can't do that... I just have it in my fingers and my ear. I also do not think it will be published anytime soon.

I can transcribe it and put it into some nice-looking notation software but it sounds like at least 10 - 20 hours of work and I would charge $50 per hour so that would be $500 to $1000 dollars. Not many people if any would pay that much for a transcription which is why I almost never do them because it's not worth the time and effort.

I have a musical skill set but people don't want to pay for it so it's better to make money outside of music where people will pay (or have to pay) the going rate for whatever you do, be it a lawyer, doctor, plumber or electrician etc.. :D

Now there are people who do transcriptions for less money, I can't verify how accurate their work is but you can check them out on Fiverr dot com.

Even if Mr. Vieaux were to publish his arrangement - which is very difficult because he would have to get permission from the Ellington estate as well as the copyright holders/publishers - let's say he charged $15 for his arrangement and sold 100 on his website or elsewhere- by then somebody will have posted it on the internet which is then shared by multiple sites which cuts into any future profits. He also has to give a big cut of the sales to the Ellington publishing house as well so it's pretty much not worth it. :(

I do hope Mr. Vieaux comes out with the book of Pat Metheny arrangements he's been promising for years now, I think it will do well because Metheny is very popular and they're excellent pieces for solo guitar. But financially he probably will make very little on it or just about break even.

OK that's the end of my "there's no money in publishing arrangements" rant, sorry!

Great stuff. Jason told me it was very time consuming to do this as he his quite accomplished at Jazz and does so many things by ear. Writing it down was the hard part not the arranging as that comes quite east to him. I know this first hand after spending a week with him in a masterclass and he loves to Improvise.

Great to hear about improvisers who play on the classical guitar. As a person who came late to classical through jazz / improvisation I feel that classical guitars and the people who play them are really well placed in terms of technique and right hand use to become accomplished improvisers. I’d like to see little less of the ‘classical’ and ‘jazz’ labelling, more crossover would serve us all well.

Also nice to ‘get off the page’ every now and again. Love it.

I just came across this - it’s so beautiful - thanks for sharing.
I think these arrangements of jazz/popular music work so well on the CG - it just sounds like the natural home for it. I’ll be ordering that copy of Fingerstyle Journal tomorrow. I know I’ll never be able to play this like Jason, but I’ll give it a go, and maybe make a simplified version that I can manage.

As a classical guitarist who is also a jazz guitarist, I find that the arrangements that work best are those done by the player. I like Jason's arrangement a lot, but I like mine better, since it changes slightly each time I play it. In fact, it's not an arrangement as much as a version, sometimes in a different key, often in different rhythmic feel. We improvisors like to improvise!

Years before he became well known, I sometimes played gigs with Jason Vieaux. (Weddings, dinner parties, background music.) I soon learned that when playing gigs with Vieaux, the sheet music to him was merely a suggestion. He loved to screw around with the music. Me, I just buried my head in the notes and tried not to get confused by what he was doing.

We once did a Christmas party. For most of the gig, we did Christmas duets as background music. But the client also wanted us to lead a Christmas carol sing-along. So when it came time to do that, I set aside my guitar and conducted the audience while Vieaux improvised accompaniments. I would tell him the next song and suggest a key. After a few seconds of thinking something up, Vieaux would nod, play an intro, and off we’d go. And he wasn’t simply chopping primary chords—he’d improvise lovely accompaniments worthy of publication.

At one point, I told him the next carol we were doing. (It was something easy like “Silent Night.”) Vieaux nodded almost immediately after hearing the title. I then turned to the audience and said: “Okay, the computer chip is programmed.”

Yes, that sense of improvisation and security is present in his classical playing, he's one of my favorites of the younger generation, he has a mature approach and lots of patience in his phrasing.

I like Jasons arrangement - it is Beautiful! - But was surprised when I bought it by the technical difficulty. This is definitely not starters level piece.
Could someone grade the arrangement? DXX? Thank you!

Surely you did not think it would be a starter level piece??? I would expect any arrangement by Jason to be full of technical challenges.
