Hip Licks for Saxophone is designed to help saxophonists develop fluency in the jazz language by providing mainstream jazz vocabulary (swing/bop/post-bop) that nails the changes and lays great on the horn. Among the 168 licks you'll find bebop lines inspired by Charlie Parker, classic Blue Note era vocabulary and many 'public domain' licks that crop up frequently in improvised solos. Each set of licks addresses a different harmonic building blocks commonly used in standard jazz chord progressions. You can learn and use each lick as is or experiement with basic jazz soloing techniques such as rhythmic displacement, enclosure/targeting and sequence and variation to develop each lick into a full blown solo.

Think of Hip Licks for Saxophone as a musical reference book, like a dictionary of great licks in all twelve keys, available when you need it. You can open the book to any page and just start playing.

Need something that will help you sound like a total pro while playing over the most challenging keys, like: C#, F# or B? Hip Licks for Saxophone is an indispensable resource that can immediately show you how a professional player would approach those tough keys and chord progressions.

There are four CDs with the book with slow and fast versions of all the licks, plus rhythm section tracks, all recorded separately for both alto and tenor saxophones.
