Howdy all,
I've been working up a solo guitar arrangement of Stomping at the Savoy.
Did Ted leave any charts or recordings of this lovely tune.

My best to you
Keith

I forgot to mention that I did see Ted's "Road Map" for this tune.

Hi Keith,
I checked the files and didn't find any written pages by Ted for "Stompin' at the Savoy."
It's always possible that he covered in during someone's private lesson, and there might even be a sheet he wrote up for an individual...but nothing in the regular teaching files or his private music studies papers.

Hi Paul,
Thank you for checking. It's a favorite tune of mine.
After I get it sorted out I'll post some grids. Maybe some of you chord melody wizards can throw some ideas back.
Peace, Keith

Hi Leon,
Here's a basic outline of Stomping at the Savoy.
Let me know what you think and feel free to add to it if you like.

Best

Very nice Kieth, you might try A13b9 for that very first chord, fingered 1 b7 b9 3 13  low to high,  it matches up with the original sound on that pickup which im pretty sure was diminished/maj7. 
thanks for sharing

Hi Tim, I like the A13b9 a lot thanks!
I don't understand about the dim maj7 though.
Was that a 1dim or a 5dim or what?

Hi BLC, Thanks! Feel free to share your input. I posted the arrangement as a way to get people to share their ideas. There is a lot of room to flesh that tune out.
Mike Longo just released a 3rd DVD in The Rythmic Nature on Jazz series. It's great stuff.  I love the series.  
My best to you.

Hi BLC, Thank you for your kind words! Do you have any thoughts about an intro, the bridge, or an ending?  I'm mostly familiar with Ella's treatment of this tune. She starts it at a slowish swing then double times it later and scat sings over it.
Best,
K

Ted loved to play Stompin at the Savoy with a flat pickā€¦ no lie! He figured out how to play it Freddie Green style (his description, not mine) with the melody on the top.

Great thread ! This is the next level I'm cutting my teeth on, digesting Ted's incredible concepts to arrange tunes on the fly. The harmonic concepts series helped a great deal. Although my wife keeps making fun of me not being able to play a whole tune from A to Z, I keep focusing on becoming a better musician. Anyone on the same boat ?

Hi Earsoup, I'm kinda in the same boat as you.
Although lately I've been making a greater effort to have a bunch of tunes to play all the way through.
