Walking Jazz Line - similar to "Take The A Train"

Here goes a little tune that I've learned to play on the bass. The bass line and chord progressions were pre-written, so I basically just learned how to play/construct them (I'm actually playing the bass part to this tune). The drums are pretty much a generic jazz drum beat; the alto sax and trumpet parts are my very own creation. I was quite impressed by the quickness that I improvised/tweaked these parts.








I've been entranced by jazz music lately, especially walking bass lines. Teaching myself the structure and mechanics of jazz bass lines has been a hobby for myself as of late. I would like to take this further some day...perhaps making my musicianship something more than just a hobby. As of now, it remains a dream!
