Contemporary Sax styles by The Super Groovers, featuring Frank Villafranca on Saxophone and Andrew D. Gordon on Keyboards and Guitar.
The smooth jazz grooves in this book feature a variety of contemporary rhythm section styles including Jazz, R&B, Rock, Gospel, Hip-Hop, and Latin.
On each of the twenty tracks, the groove is separated into three melodic ideas. Each melodic idea (example or riff) is played first, by the Saxophone with the groove, followed by just the rhythm section groove, without Sax. The first example is usually the easiest, the second slightly harder and the third the most difficult.
"Andrew D. Gordon and A.D.G. Productions have done a fine job of compiling this information in an attractive and accessible package. Many a smooth jazz aficionado will appreciate this collection in print and on CD.
