Great for practice or performance.
This book gives students an opportunity to experience the excitement of playing professional level sax duets with a great rhythm section, although most are suitable for the solid intermediate level player. Each duet is a musical conversation between the two saxophones.
Written in an interactive style, both saxophonists are actively involved rhythmically, melodically and harmonically throughout the duets, combining to form a complete musical picture. This book offers maximum flexibility, giving saxophonists the choice of playing with two altos, two tenors, or alto and tenor. A unique feature of the book is that both alto and tenor saxophonists read the same written part while the rhythm section transposes to accommodate the saxophonists.
The three play-along CDs included with this book feature four different versions of each duet. The first track features both saxophones plus the rhythm section; the second track features the second saxophone part plus the rhythm section; the third track features the first saxophone part plus the rhythm section; the fourth track features the rhythm section only, with extra choruses for soloing.
These extra choruses allow the saxophonists to musically communicate with each other by trading choruses or phrases during the solo section of the play-along tracks. Recommended for intermediate to advanced high school and college saxophonists.
