Greg Fishman: Jazz Saxophone Duets Volume 2
Jazz Saxophone Duets Volume 2 by Greg Fishman continues in the tradition of his original top-selling duet book. This book features ten duets for two altos, two tenors or alto & tenor saxophone. Like all of Greg's books, the rhythm section plays all of the pieces in two different keys, allowing both alto and tenor players to read the same written part. This unique feature ensures that the parts lay perfectly on all saxophones. In addition, the second half of the book features the duets arranged for alto and tenor, making this one of the most flexible duet books on the market.
Jazz Saxophone Duets - Volume 2 includes 10 Duets and 3 CDs--Versions for 2 altos, 2 tenors and a version for alto & Tenor, with each etude played by Greg Fishman and Mark Colby (2nd tenor), plus extra rhythm section tracks for extended blowing. Also includes: style and analysis section and detailed practice guide for intermediate, advanced and pro-level players.

Q: Do I need two sax players to play the duets with the play-along CD?
A: No. Because of the extra play-along tracks included, you have the choice of playing the 2nd sax part with Greg Fishman playing the 1st part, or you can choose to play the first part yourself, and have Mark Colby playing the 2nd part. If you have another player present to play the duets with you, you can choose another track that has just the rhythm section.
Q: Can I practice soloing with the play-along CD?
A: Yes. The play-along CDs include an extended version of each duet with the rhythm section playing extra choruses for soloing.
