Transcribe – St Thomas

St. Thomas by Sonny Rollins has been a firm fixture in my set list for years.  St. Thomas has a catchy melody and the harmony is easy to memorise.

On this course I take you through St. Thomas showing you why this is one of my favourite pieces of all time.  The solo by Sonny is a superb example of rhythmic improvisation followed by some killer phrases.

Come and find out why I love this so much, and you will fall in love with it yourself.

Sonny Rollins is one of my favourite saxophonists and improvisors and today we are going to look at transcribing St. Thomas. His unique approach and complete command of his instrument makes him a MUST for any serious saxophone student.
