Ten original and progressive single-line Jazz solos, written for the Tenor Saxophone by Lennie Nielhaus. The solos range from grade two to grade six standard, covering a wide variety of Jazz styles and soloing techniques. They feature a variety of key signatures, tempi, and styles to interest and challenge players. The solos are primarily scored in the swing style, including a jazz waltz, plus a couple Latin solos and a ballad. Angular intervals, interesting patterns moving from key to key, and frequent articulation and dynamic markings are provided. The solos work equally well with or without a rhythm section.
Several pieces from this terrific edition are included in the ABRSM Soprano and Tenor Saxophone Syllabus, grades 5, 6 and 7.
