Description

Amazing Phrasing is a practical and pleasing manual for any Alto saxophone player interested in learning how to improvise and improve their creative phrasing.

The ideas are divided into three intuitive sections:

Harmony which explores

  • scales and barpeggios
  • chord substitutions
  • harmonic embellishments and other phrasing ideas
Rhythm covers
  • legato tonguing
  • swing feel
  • rhythmic displacement
  • how to manipulate and mix-up time and syncopation
Melody
  • using contour lines
  • making musical patterns
  • developing motifs and building a solo
The companion CD contains demos for listening as well as many play-along examples so you can practice improvising over various musical styles and progressions.

Rating Review
Customer Rating Amazing is what it is. My sax teacher recommended this one and although its hard work going through each section in all keys, its very rewarding. I use the ideas in my warm ups and then work through for about 30 minutes a day. I think it will still be in use over the next few years. Worth every penny as far as I'm concerned.

Customer Rating Wow.....amazing! a definite confidence booster, and very clearly explained. Plenty of opportunity to put your own twist on things once the basics have been mastered.
