    Solo saxophone etude

    While my next project is not going smoothly , I re-rendered my old saxophone solo tune with JABB.

    http://jun.music.coocan.jp/music/sax1.mp3

    I tried to incorporate many advices I got here into this piece.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    To my ear, very nice sound on the sax in this, Jun;
    and an interesting etude, as well.

    Hi Jun,
    There are many styles of jazz on tenor, and everyone has their own favorite.
    I like the over all feel of this piece.
    I think you might need an iron lung to play that long at a time.
    The tenor can have a really nice sound playing long tones. This also gives the ear a chance to organize what is happening.
    Add more silent pauses to accentuate changes.
    Sometimes with a computer we forget that all wind players have
    to breathe about every 10-20 seconds.
    Look in this piece and you can find spots for long tones, silent spots etc. and someeone will play it.

    Very cool, indeed. You got a real good tone out of the sax on this one and I loved the last note "roll off." LOL

    I'd like to hear this with maybe 4-5 other players as a group play. The solo is great, but it seems there's a lot to be had besides the solo. Just my druthers.

    Really great, Jun.

    garymosse,

    Thank you very much for your advice. I agree the piece requires superhuman ability of performance. In later pieces, I have tried to catch some more reality in performance.

    For example, this tune...

    Jun,

    Really great sax sound you got from the JABB. Yes the Etude is technical and demanding, but you also left some nice spaces in it for breathing.
