James Rae: Blue Saxophone

Books | Saxophone with Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Universal Edition
Composer: James Rae

Blue Saxophone has been composed with the aim of introducing Saxophonists to music in the blues idiom. The pieces are of moderate length and in varied styles. The accompaniments have been written in such a way as to encourage the correct interpretation of the music. Basic chord symbols have also been added to the middle section of each piece to allow freedom for improvisation. Parts have been included for both B-flat and E-flat Saxophones.

Selected for the ABRSM Alto and Tenor Saxophone examinations grades 3 and 4.

          Easy to follow.
          The book lacks information on the appropriate note fingering, which many other books include, however it does not lower the over all quality.

          My daughters music teacher recommended this book for her Grade 3 practice. It provides a variety of pieces and the content is at the right level for now and in the future.
