I'm using the original published edition. I was hoping to get something that was professionally edited instead of some random score off the internet.

why settle for something random on the internet?

there's http://blueblackjazz.com/en/transcription/74/74-james-p-johnson-carolina-shout-transcription-pdf (from an original piano roll, evidently)

another transcription
http://www.fvstore.com/JAMES-P-JOHNSON-PIANO-SONG-BOOK-1945-JAZZ-Sheet-Music/p301109.html

also this article by ethan iverson

http://dothemath.typepad.com/dtm/in-search-of-james-p-johnson.html

sums up much of what is published and available (evidently there's not a lot that's available and totally accurate as you've noted ....)

here's another (academic) source of information with at least 3 pages of the shout ....

https://basinstreettobirdland.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/martin-on-james-p1.pdf

what you want (a totally edited note perfect edition) may or may be out there and it depends on what you mean by "professionally edited" ... the internet is your friend in helping you get to the bottom of it. hope this helps .... i know it's not perfect.

I just meant that I'd heard the piece before but when I got the score there were things in it that didn't sound right, and I know popular music sheets from that era for mass consumption were either rewritten out of recognition to make them easier to play, and/or full of bad arrangements and wrong notes, that if I was going to learn this I should work off a correct score.

Thanks for the links.

More than one great pianist learned it by following the depressed keys on a player piano.
