My book "Jazz Harp" includes transcriptions in both arrow and standard
notation of Tom Scott's tenor sax solo on Joni Mitchell's"Raised on
Robbery" and King Curtis's first and second tenor sax solos on "Ridin'
Thumb".   I learned a lot from studying those.  For example: Curtis
typically uses a pentatonic scale for ascending lines, and a blues scale
for descending lines.  Either way, he sounds great.

Thanks, Richard Hunter
