For Saxes Only! (10 Jazz Duets for Saxophone) 00-0480B upc 654979997832
For Saxes Only! 10 Jazz Duets for Saxophone is a fantastic collection of jazz standards, all arranged for two easy- to intermediate-level players. These jazz duets include music by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as a few originals composed especially for this book. The duets are written for performance by two instruments pitched in the same key, such as a B-flat tenor with a B-flat soprano, or an E-flat alto with an E-flat baritone. The enclosed CD features Greg Yasinitsky playing all the duets, with each part recorded on a separate channel. To play along with the CD, the saxophonist simply turns off one of the stereo channels. A great way to work on jazz concept, phrasing, intonation, and blend, and a fun way to make music with friends! Titles are: Bye Bye Blackbird * A Foggy Day * The Man I Love * But Not for Me * What Is This Thing Called Love * Groovin' High * Fly by Night * Good to Go * Big Sky * Crazy Eights.
