Who wouldn't enjoy playing one of the wind instruments in the music of Earth, Wind & Fire (Phoenix Horns), Tower of Power, Kool & the Gang, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Michael Jackson (Jerry Hey, Bill Reichenbach) or James Brown (Horny Horns)? This volume introduces the player to cutting-edge Funk & Soul Power wind accompaniments and really makes the six pieces in this edition take off! That's not all, though. You can also take over the role of the soloist, if you like, leading the wind band, accompanied by the funky rhythm section and improvising over simple harmonies. This book will show you how to do it, too. Includes a bonus track for practicing the right style of funky phrasing. Get the funk!

    I play sax almost 1 and a half year (just), mostly using playalong books. This book is excellent and from all books I've taken the most from it. All the pieces are fine selected, there are different pretentiousness across the pieces, playalong is powerful, allowing place and time for...

    own solos and themes. The book shows how to approach to funky style playing, also has scores for the band, shows short training riffs. Great book, hardly waiting for the "Blues" from the same author I've ordered. What sax and mouthpiece is used? Will there be some new funky editions? Congratulations and thanks to Mr.Dechert.
