Advanced Concepts In Rock Saxophone
Masterclass/Play-Along CD
by Andrew Clark

I am pleased to present my sixth masterclass CD for Saxophone Journal. For the first part of this CD I would like to introduce some techniques that three of the biggest names in rock saxophone employ. I recorded three song loops that explore the styles of Clarence Clemons, King Curtis, and Junior Walker.
