This is a detailed transcription of Bud Powell composition So Sorry Please recorded by Bud Powell in 1950 on his Jazz Giant record (Verve). I should mention the Tommy Flanagan Trio version from the recording with J.J.Johnson. The tune has a form similar to “Rhythm Changes” with the “Honeysuckle Rose” bridge. Bud uses this interesting pentatonic idea for the intro and the ‘A’ sections.

Really nice! I’ve checked all available transcriptions of this tune on the internet including the one from the Hal Leonard book, but all of them have some inaccuracies especially in the intro and the main part… Your version is very much close to the original Bud’s version. Thanks!
