Kenny Garrett ’2 Down & 1 Across’ – Lead Sheet


Another artist I’ve been listening to a lot recently, not least because he’s had some of the world’s best drummers in his band, is Kenny Garrett and his album Songbook.

On ’2 Down & 1 Across’ Garrett is accompanied by what is widely considered to be his finest group, with Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts on drums, Kenny Kirkland on Piano and Nat Reeves on Bass. Have a look at the drum lead sheet below. The Rubato sign at the beginning of the tune signals a set of chords cued in free time by Garrett. From there on it has a fairly conventional structure, all in 4/4 time.
