  • 2011-06-01 00:00:00.0 great piece of music.

    This is a nicely arranged chart for a beginning band, and the Alto Sax solo really stands out.

  • 2006-08-30 00:00:00.0 Music is not about the notes

    Let's say that a saxophone player with no extreme liking for music picks up this piece and plays it. They play the notes exactly as writen. It probably will not sound like the best piece you ever heard, but like a beginner's piece. "Stranger on the Shore" is...

    a piece based on expression and feeling. A great player would pick up the music, add grace notes and vibrato in it, and it can instantly turn from sounding like a beginner's excersize into a perfessinal sheet of music.

    This music is a very simple piece to actually play and a lot of beginning users dont understand its complexity. The notes and rhythms are simple enough but the piece is only beautiful when in the hands of truly talented musicians!!!

    I paid money for this hoping it would improve my skill! It's the easiest song I've ever seen besides "Hot Cross Buns".
