To really develop our skills as improvisers and “blues players”, we need to understand the legendary players from this genre.

One of my favourites is Lee Allen.

Why is Lee Allen important?

In this video I share a lesson from inside the Blues Mastery for Saxophone course.

Blues Mastery is a brilliant program for developing rock solid improvising skills. You will learn a framework in this course that makes the process of improvising much easier and helps to build your confidence.

Lee Allen is one of 4 legendary players we look at throughout Blues Mastery. His playing is so important for us to understand as we are learning improvising because it is simple, but so powerful.

Lee Allen used rhythm and clear melodic structures in his solos that just “work”. Also, during his career he helped shape the modern RnB saxophone sound that we have today.
