Amazing Phrasing is for any tenor saxophone player interested in learning how to improvise and how to improve their creative phrasing.
The ideas are divided into three main sections: Harmony – explores scales, arpeggios, chord substitutions, harmonic embellishments, and other harmonic phrasing ideas; Rhythm – covers legato tonguing, swing feel, rhythmic displacement, how to manipulate time and other aspects of rhythmic phrasing; Melody – discusses contour lines, making patterns musical, developing a motif, building a solo, and many other melodic phrasing ideas.
The companion audio includes 26 full-band tracks in various musical styles for listening and play along. The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
