    Lots of fun playing these tunes, and sharing with students. Real variety, easy to moderate arrangements, couple of fast tempos to challenge. Highly recommend it.

  • June 20, 2007 Carl Strommen is One of the Best!

    This is the 4th of Carl Strommen's books with CD for sax that I have purchased, and they are the best and most fun to play along with! Wish he would put out more for sax players.

  • October 26, 2004 Way Too Much Fun!

    I got this book and CD for trumpet a couple of years ago. The arrangements are great fun to play. This is my favorite play-along (and I have quite a few). The music is relatively easy (not easy enough for beginners) and the accompaniment is outstanding. The only problem...

    with it is that I would love to play this all year long, but it is Christmas music. I wish I could find similar books of other genres from this author/arranger. I can't recommend this highly enough.
