Brendan Clarke: United Blues

United Blues is a great track found on the “Stay Right With It” album of Australian Bass player, Brendan Clarke
It is a F blues.  I believe this is a Ron Carter composition.  

The track swings with great energy.  In particular i really love the piano improv and thought i’d would be great to transcribe a few choruses.   The pianist is John Harkins.  Wonderful playing.  Here’s the head.
