Victor Bailey: Countdown

Victor Bailey is about to get you to kick your practicing into high gear with this video. It’s a playalong of his take on John Coltrane’s “Countdown” as heard on Bailey’s Slippin’ N’ Trippin’ album.

“When I went to Berklee 35 years ago, I transcribed a bunch of Coltrane solos including this one,” Bailey shared. “I’m playing Coltrane’s solo. This is just my playalong with the record to give you a visual idea of what’s possible if you want to practice enough.”

As if that’s not cool enough, Ron Carter is also laying down the bass on the track.
