Contemporary Jazz Saxophone
Masterclass/Play-Along CD
"Sound, Time, Feel"
by Skip Spratt

CONTEMPORARY JAZZ SAXOPHONE
This masterclass CD for Saxophone Journal is really about sound, time, and feel. What I have learned about myself while doing these recordings over the past few years is that sound and time are the primary considerations when I play, or teach, the saxophone. I feel sound and time should be of the utmost importance to every teacher, player, and student. Many trained saxophonists work with tuners and metronomes in order to better perfect their playing. The old adage “practice makes perfect” rings true, however, perfection is something to seek, yet often never truly obtained. I am no different.
