Jazz Saxophone Duets

Saxophone duet
Composed by Greg Fishman. Play Along, Jazz. Book and 3 CDs. Published by Greg Fishman Jazz Studios (GF.JSD).

Item Number: GF.JSD

This book gives students an opportunity to experience the excitement of playing professional level sax duets with a great rhythm section, although most are suitable for the solid intermediate level player. Each duet is a musical conversation between the two saxophones. Written in an interactive style, both saxophonists are actively involved rhythmically, melodically and harmonically throughout the duets, combining to form a complete musical picture.

This book offers maximum flexibility, giving saxophonists the choice of playing with two altos, two tenors, or alto and tenor. A unique feature of the book is that both alto and tenor saxophonists read the same written part while the rhythm section transposes to accommodate the saxophonists.

The three play-along CDs included with this book feature four different versions of each duet. The first track features both saxophones plus the rhythm section; the second track features the second saxophone part plus the rhythm section; the third track features the first saxophone part plus the rhythm section; the fourth track features the rhythm section only, with extra choruses for soloing. These extra choruses allow the saxophonists to musically communicate with each other by trading choruses or phrases during the solo section of the playalong tracks.

Recommended for intermediate to advanced high school and college saxophonists.

The fact that tenor saxophonist and author Greg Fishman is a native Chicagoan is obvious from start in this valuable new book of jazz saxophone duets. The titles of each of the duets read like a Chicago street map, and the music reads like a post bebop encyclopedia of sounds and melodic shapes that are required repertoire for any young jazz saxophonist.

This book is a companion volume to Fishman's Jazz Saxophone Etudes, and shares many of its best qualities. These are true duets. Fishman avoids two parts written in clich.

  • January 24, 2009 Challenging but fun

    Greg Fishman's sax duets present a nice challenge for the advancing player. The multiple CDs and tracks make it possible to hear any part you want to play. You can either play along in unison or play in harmony. It's a wonderfully flexible format and very user friendly...

    . These are well written pieces with a nice variety of rhythms and tempos. Any advancing student of jazz will find them fun to play while pushing skills toward a higher level.
