Creative Saxophone is an innovative series for the Saxophonist who wants to play Jazz, Blues, Rock and other contemporary styles whilst developing a solid technique. The idiomatic exercises and pieces encourage an awareness of authentic styles and give players the confidence to begin improvising. The book contains 16 pieces in a variety of contemporary music styles, each with ideas for improvising.

This is an absolutely fantastic book for learning saxophone improvisation. The material is very well thought out and prestented in a way that make improvisation easy. The back up tracks on the included CD are wonderful, because you can concentrate on your own playing and development because the rhythm and chord changes are easy to hear. This book is totally 'hip.'
