Cool Jazz. For tenor saxophone. Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD4216).
Saxophonist Rich Maraday has created an album of originals and contemporary standards for the modern saxophonist, an excellent learning tool for the beginning to the advanced tenor or alto sax player wishing to hone their skills in the genre of smooth jazz. The songs give the player a chance to put his or her personal stamp on the melody as well as on the solo sections. Score includes both B-flat and E-flat parts.
Includes a high-quality printed solo part with parts for both B-flat tenor and E-flat alto saxes, and a compact disc containing a complete performance with soloist (on tenor sax); then a second version with accompaniment only.
