Books and CDs | Alto Saxophone

Publisher: Schott Music
Series: Free To Solo
Format: Audio / Video | Backing Tracks

Free To Solo is a unique publication designed to be a fun play-along book for students who want to enjoy soloing freely, instead of having to cope with too many scale changes. With interesting heads, and long open sections, the tunes encourage creativity over the inspiring contemporary material. Free to Solo is suitable for intermediate students seeking a challenge as well as more advanced players requiring additional material to explore.

On the included CD there are 'minus one' tracks to play along with as well as complete performance versions of all the instruments in the series (Alto / Tenor sax, Flute / Violin, Clarinet, Trumpet, Guitar and Trombone), so that the reader can draw upon different interpretations of the improvised material.

        Gets to the point about improvisation. Not so much theory as say Taylor's improvisation book Amazing Phrasing but lots of practical advice. In other words it is an accessible book. I like the way the authors give advice on the scales one could use for improvising
        As with many improvisation books I have, a more detailed tips advice list and how to overcome snags with chord progression id required. But as these and other authors explain, the training of the ear is vital. Lots of practice should enable me overcome this hurdle
