Tips And Techniques
For Two Horns
By Sax Gordon & Andrew Clark
Sax Gordon and I recorded
this project at my house using a Mac Server 63/300, a Audiomedia III card
running with ProTools LE software, and a Mackie 1402VLZ mixer. Microphones
used were all Shure models: WM98, Beta 58, and a 33-1070D for Gordon’s voice
track. THE SHEET MUSIC The sheet music is the individual sax parts written
out for tenor and alto/bari. The solos are not transcribed but all the horn
parts are. On the tracks sub-titled “no horns” we invite you to use the
sheet music Sax Gordon and Andrew Clark prepared, and play along. Because
of the length of the sheet music with this masterclass we included only
the tenor 1, and tenor 2 parts in this issue of Saxophone Journal. The sheet
music for Eb alto and baritone, is available as a free download from our
website. You’ll need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer
to read and print the .pdf music files. If you need it, we included a link
to acquire the Adobe Acrobat Reader browsing utility (not only for Saxophone
Journal music, etc., but all internet usage). Please visit: www.dornpub.com/saxophonejournal/twohornsmusic.html
This tune is reminiscent of the funky Broadway groove and named for
the location of Papasax Studios.
This tune is named after the long running band that Gordon and I were
involved with in Cambridge.
This tune was the first tune we started working on for this project
and from the beginning we knew we would never meet any deadline now
matter how liberal it was.
No, the title isn’t meant as a tribute to those hard working saxophonists
toiling away for merciless singers across the country. It’s actually
a military style salute that horn players give each other. It ends
with your watch in front of your eyes!
All saxophone parts were written and arranged
by Gordon Beadle.
