The saxophone has been the mainstay in popular music since the 1950’s. On this course we learn some of the most recognisable solos of the last 50 years.
This was the first solo of Lester Young I ever learnt. It was recommended to me by my mentor, Branford Marsalis. It is a perfect example of how to play the blues.
The first thing anyone hears when you play the saxophone is your tone. It is your calling card, the thing that distinguishes you from others – it’s the most important part of your practice.
