New for September 2020! A delightful Jazz-inspired collection for Bb Saxophone and Piano with demo/backing tracks, by Chris Lawry and Keri Degg.
Christmas Jazz for Bb Saxophone Volume 2 consists of five festive arrangements including smoochy ballads (The Holly and the Ivy, and Away in a manger, but also tunes with serious groove factor (O Holy Night - with a funk groove/cheeky quality with optional growl/slap tongue), plus Ukrainian Folk Carol in a crazy swing style (you'll probably recognise it my a different name though ;), and Deck the halls (in a minor key, inspired by the beautiful music of Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla). A set of demonstration (sax with backing), and backing tracks are included with the book (with either CD option, or via download using the link provided, or as PDF/MP3 edition sent to your email - please allow up to 48 hours for email delivery, although we usually try and send files same day, depending on which option you have chosen).
As well as featuring the original tune, each piece has an element of written out accessible sax solo; enabling you to sound like a pro. The pieces are not too advanced (although Ukrainian Folk Carol is perhaps around grade 6-7), and players of intermediate ability will be able to play all without any difficulty. Some, (Away in a manger, and The Holly and the Ivy for instance) are even more accessible; around grade 3-4.
Christmas Jazz Collection is also available in Eb (Alto/Baritone) Sax and Piano, Bb Clarinet, and Flute editions. The pieces are also available individually as PDF/MP3 Email delivery at £3.25 GBP each.
Please enjoy a medley of excerpts below and youtube videos of two of the pieces from the collection;
