Greg Fishman: Jazz Phrasing Studies Universal Edition
Jazz Phrasing Studies Volume 1 features the same great songs as Jazz Phrasing for Saxophone Volume 1, but in a universal edition! Includes transposed parts for all C (treble clef), Bb, Eb and C (bass clef instruments).
This book is perfect for individual and ensemble use. Band directors can order multiple copies, hand out the books to the entire band, and they're set for the entire year with ten great songs that can be used for daily warmups, phrasing studies, sight-reading, intonation training, section balance, etc.
These songs are also great for concert performance, and they're easily opened up for multiple soloists. Chord progressions for the songs are based on popular standards, with harmonies similar to Satin Doll, Autumn Leaves, Summertime, etc.
The play-along CD features demonstration tracks of all songs, played by Greg Fishman on alto (3 songs) and tenor saxophone (2 songs), Victor Garcia on trumpet (3 songs) and Russ Phillips on trombone (2 songs). With this great variety of instruments demonstrating the tracks, everyone gets a chance to play and blend their sound with multiple instruments. CD also includes rhythm section-only tracks, perfect for soloing over the chord changes.
