Saxophone Altissimo (High Note Development For The Contemporary Player) - Robert Luckey
Designed to meet the needs of the intermediate to advanced player, this book contains virtually all there is to know about playing in the altissimo register of the saxophone. Clearly written text accompanies an extensive array of exercises, fingering diagrams and musical examples, covering every possible question that may arise on the subject. The unique requirements of each member of the sax family (soprano, alto, tenor and baritone) receive special focus, making the book equally valuable to classical and jazz players and their teachers.
