From the Publisher

These multi functional pieces serve the needs of Sax players who wish to come to terms with jazz and improvised musical language. Play the studies by themselves to discover some idiomatic phrasing, play them with the CD support to explore the 'groove' and 'feel' of the 'ensemble' or just improvise using the scale/mode from which the pieces are derived and explore some of the concepts in the 'tasty licks' or gain some inspiration from the sample 'impros' on the CD. In short, just use this material as you see fit but, most of all, enjoy!
