Melodic Etudes - Essential Jazz Repertoire Vol 2
This collection of written solos based on beloved jazz standards is an improved BetterSax version of the classic etude book. Intermediate players will find these to be fun to play, accessible and just the right level of challenge. In the accompanying video lessons I explain exactly what I’m thinking in every measure. Students will come away with a much better understanding of how effective jazz solos are crafted enabling them to level up their own playing.
