From the Publisher

For Saxes Only! 10 Jazz Duets for Saxophone is a fantastic collection of jazz standards, all arranged for two easy- to intermediate-level players. These jazz duets include music by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as a few originals composed especially for this book. The duets are written for performance by two instruments pitched in the same key, such as a B-flat tenor with a B-flat soprano, or an E-flat alto with an E-flat baritone. The enclosed CD features Greg Yasinitsky playing all the duets, with each part recorded on a separate channel. To play along with the CD, the saxophonist simply turns off one of the stereo channels. A great way to work on jazz concept, phrasing, intonation, and blend, and a fun way to make music with friends!
