    Hi everyone!

    Where can I find sheet music for Jim Hall’s calypso composition ”Bermuda Bye Bye”? Calypso and caribbean music in general are some of my favorite styles to play on jazz guitar. Does anyone know where I can find sheet music for this composition?

    Do we have some Jim Hall fans out there?

    Never heard that one. Is it a contrafact of "Jamaica Farewell"?

    Lovely tune.

    I have the Jim Hall Exploring Jazz Guitar book, which Jim Hall generously gave to me along with most of his CDs . Just checked the song is not in there.

    I like that tune. I could try and at least figure out the chords if you give me a few days. Got a busy week, but I'd like to play this one too.

    Great album too. And Big Blues. Jim and Art Farmer were so good together.

    It doesn't sound like it would be too hard to earball it. In fact I kind of dig it and I think I am going to listen to it about a hundred times and work out my own vibe.

    Nah, heads pretty easy. Jim does some really cool chordal stuff in the solo.

    I'm gonna finish my transcription anyway, and post a video. I cant figure out how to access the transcription at that guy's site anyway.

    Thanks, Jeff! I look forward to both see your transcription and video.

    By the way, a question striked me today when I listened to the original recording. Does Hall play a nylon-strunged guitar or is it his ES-175/D’Aquisto recorded acoustically? I’m not sure at all. It actually reminds me a bit of the ”Virtuoso” sound with Joe Pass.

    Quick glance.... looks like a student access site.

    It sure is a happy tune.
