Book and three CD play-along set for two altos, two tenors or alto and tenor.
This duet book was written with the idiomatic tendencies for tenor (or vice-versa), you know that the transposed version of the solo never seems to 'lay right' on the non-native horn. This is because all of the fingerings of the notes have changed. In additions to the fingering changes, some notes will be beyond the normal range of the saxophone. As a result, portions of some phrases need to be transposed up or down an octave. This transposition disrupts the natural flow of the original melodic line.
There are three CDs included with this book:
Eb Alto Saxophone Version: Use this disc to play the duets with two altos or two baritones.
Bb Tenor Saxophone Version: Use this disc to play the duets with two tenors or two sopranos.
Alto & Tenor Version: Use this disc to play the duets with alto playing the first part (top staff) and tenor playing the second part (bottom staff)
Each CD have forty-one tracks. Tracks 1-40 contain four different versions of each of the ten duets. Track 41 is a tuning track with piano playing concert A and concert Bb.
