Jazz Incorporated Alto Sax Vol. 1 Book/CD
“Makes every player sound like a professional…” Andy Firth
“The only problem is getting students to practise other music as well..” Victorian MTA review
The Jazz Incorporated series is a unique collection of graded contemporary pieces suitable for all popular wind and brass instruments. In addition to being excellent solos with piano accompaniment, they can also be used effectively as ensembles in a class teaching situation. The inclusion of chord symbols enables the addition of a rhythm section and also encourages improvisation.
The pieces are fully notated with articulation, phrasing, ‘catchy’ melodies, modern chord voicings and performance notes. They contain a wealth of stylistic devices, techniques and harmonic ideas for the aspiring instrumentalist.
