Brand new in Sax School this week is a new Jazz Performance Pack lesson bundle on the classic jazz standard “Blue Bossa”.
Why jazz standards are important for sax players
This is a standard that all of us saxophone players need to know because it is a tune that is often called on jam sessions and jazz gigs.
Plus it is a brilliant introduction to jazz harmony.
However, it is important to know your standards well.
And I mean really well – the melody AND how to create a killer solo over it.
What is inside this saxophone lesson:
Inside this performance pack, you’ll learn the melody for alto and tenor sax, plus how to approach the harmony and tactics on how to create a great solo over this tune.
Plus, you also get a bunch of resources you can use yourself for practice and performance.
That way you will be prepared when “Blue Bossa” is called on a jam session or gig!
And, if you’re new to improvising, you’ll love the tips in these lessons on how to create great sounding solos easily.
