For Saxes Only: Alto, Tenor, Baritone Sax, Trumpet or Clarinet

For Saxes Only: Alto, Tenor, Baritone Sax, Trumpet or Clarinet

Series: Music Minus One Publisher: Music Minus One Format: Softcover with CD Composer: Various

Performed by Bob Wilber, tenor sax; Hilton Jefferson, alto sax



For Saxes Only is designed to give the jazz saxophonist (or clarinet or trumpet player) an opportunity to play with a top-flight sax section. Due to the comparative scarcity of big bands today, this is the one area in which young players sorely lack experience. The problems of sight-reading, intonation, phrasing, vibrato, unisons, subtone, etc. which the player will encounter in working with this album are the same one would face playing with Ellington, Basie or Goodman. If you haven't had the opportunity to work in a big band, playing with this album should give you an idea of that special thrill one gets when the blend is perfect and everybody's swinging together!



Includes printed musical score for E-flat and B-flat instruments, and a compact disc featuring complete recordings (with alto sax as the solo instrument), and a second performance of the accompaniments only.
