  • June 09, 2008 Clear, accurate, challenging, FUN!

    I've been listening to tenor for 30 years and playing for only a year. I decided to pick this up to see just how far I have to go, as St. Thomas by Sonny Rollins is one of my favorite tracks. Wow, what a challenge! But with the music...

    in front of me (and the tune in my head and/or my iPod) I'm able to play much of it full speed, and the first couple runs at about 1/8 speed... This book is a challenge but holds my interest way more than the typical beginner/intermediate stuff. My teacher rates this tune a 10 out of 10 in difficulty but if you want to see how these tunes are built, see just how limber these guys are in their speed, the length of their phrases, the incredible complexity you can build around just a D scale, this book shows you the promised land. I for one still have one heck of a journey to get there but I'm thrilled!

    This book of transcribed tenor sax solos is one of the best I have ever come across. The introduction by Tim Price is insightful and inspirational. The selection of solos traverses the best styles and time periods from the very best, but sometimes overlooked, masters of the tenor.
