The concepts presented in this book will keep players learning, maturing, and mastering the Saxophone in modern times, and for many years to come. On the included online video, author and virtuoso saxophonist Frank Catalano offers quick tips on many of the topics covered in the book. “In the Band” allows saxophonists to play along on six tunes and studies.
