Description
Following on from the best-selling Jazz Method for Saxophone, Developing Jazz Technique for Saxophone will help intermediate players take their jazz skills to a new level. The 22 pieces are written in a variety of jazz styles, including reggae, jazz waltz, bossa nova, calypso, New Orleans, South African, salsa, samba, blues and swing. Special emphasis is given to helping students improvise over chord sequences, such as the II-V-I progression. Idiomatic effects such as vibrato, subtone, glissandi and ‘bending’ notes are dealt with, and there is a special chapter on overtones. Several new scales are introduced, including the whole tone and diminished scales, and a special section on patterns contains many ideas for practising in all 12 keys. A superb rhythm section provides backing for all the pieces and exercises on the accompanying CD.
