Alto saxophone with piano
City Lights no 3 from the album “Six for Sax” a jazz and Blues suite-available for Tenor. Price is for score and parts
Six for Sax is an album of pieces which incorporates rhythmical elements associated with Jazz and Blues styles, as well as written out improvisational material to perform.
There are six very different styles: “Downtown”’(driving 4 @ 2mins 15) Cocktails,(Lazy blues @2mins.45) “City Lights” (Gritty blues@ 1min 30) “Pot Luck” (straight punchy 4,@1min 30) “Sight- Seeing”(Jazz [email protected] 12), “Walk’ in the Rain”(medium [email protected] 30)
Part of each piece has a section marked “impro” and this written out section should be interpreted as if improvising.
There are no metronome markings or speeds, but a suggested “feel” which can be interpreted by the player. Dynamic markings are also minimal to give the player freedom of choice, but articulations have been included where necessary.
The piano parts provide very full support. They have no lead lines and leave the sax to be prominent. The pieces benefit from being in user friendly keys for both players!
The pieces originally started life as exercises, but make ideal concert pieces, and could be used as exercises as part of further study. They are approximately Associated Board Grade 5 to around 7 - advanced intermediate.
