You Don't Know What Love Is - Joe Locke

An old transcription of mine of "You Don't Know What Love Is" played by the great Joe Locke. This is from Joe's 1994 trio recording "Very Early" with bassist Ron McClure and drummer Adam Nussbaum. Joe's playing has evolved immensely since then, yet he was playing at an incredible high level. Gustavo

Thanks for commenting Haneefa.

Yes, I agree with you, Joe's playing is beautiful on this recording. Great lines, sound and execution. The good thing about the transcription is that we can plug in the chord changes and analyze the concepts Joe uses in his lines. There's a lot of harmonic depth in Joe's playing.
