Weirdo – Kenny Drew

Despite the title, this classic uptempo hard bop song is not particularly weird. The solo form, however, is quite different from that of the head. Kenny Drew's piano melody and solo transcriptions are available.

Kenny Drew

August 28, 1928 – August 4, 1993

Kenny Drew was born in New York City. He studied classical piano but soon turned to jazz. His recording career started in 1950 at age 22, first with Howard McGhee for Blue Note, then Sonny Stitt for Prestige. These two 1950 recordings plus a surviving radio broadcast with Charlie Parker (December 8, 1950) put him in the company of jazz greats J.J Johnson, Max Roach and Art Blakey. Read more...
