    Happy Juneteenth, SOTW! Here's one of my favorite ballads, written by one of my all-time musical heroes, Herbie Hancock. The original version of "Alone and I" is great, of course, from Herbie's debut solo album, but Mark Turner's take on "Ballad Session" is a really influential recording for me...

    Mildly anxious at flooding this forum section... but the responses so far have been lovely and encouraging; so here's the next 'Lockdown Ballad' (man, I miss playing with others so much!) Enjoy, I hope. Setup: Conn 10M, Otto Link Florida USA Super Tone Master 9, Jazz Select 2H reed. Cheers, Tim

    Hey everyone! Back with another C Melody Sax video. A bunch of people have requested to hear a ballad on this instrument, so here it is! One of the most beautiful of all time - "My One and Only Love." Let me know what you think, and if you have other song ideas let me know!

    Howdy, SOTW! It's been a while since we posted a new video, so here's a slow-jam for your steamy August. "Haunt" is definitely the most ambient and vibey track we've recorded, I daresay, and I hope you dig it. This one features the wonderful guitarists Carter Arrington and Dan Muniz, bassist...

    Now while a lot of people love machine-gun 8th notes ripping over a 300+bpm tune, there's something very personal about ballads. They expose the musician and really draw the listener in to hear what the performer is feeling. I also see a lot of comments on here saying how people nowadays just...

    Just straight melody here. Sometimes I like to just play it plain and pretty. I've been known to make some $ by just sticking to the script.

    This is a favorite tune to play because it has such a beautiful melody. I'm playing Mark VI 105xxx with my Link 9* and a Roberto's Winds reed.
  11. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hi all, As I am playing mostly in jazz combos these days, when we play ballads I'm often expected to play a sax cadenza at the very end of the tune. I'm looking for advice about how to develop a cadenza, specifically with regard to harmonic motion and melodic development in order to resolve a...

  14. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Bruce was often the go-to guy in Maynard's band for burning solos at ball-busting tempos. For my blog, I've transcribed a tune (my tune!) featuring Bruce's soft and seductive side. The result is a lovely little etude with some serious musical wisdom embedded into it. This is the first bari...

    I'm about to be a junior in high school and I'm auditioning on tenor for a local jazz ensemble. They have a required piece; it's a transcription of Michael Brecker's solo in Suspone. However, they also are asking for a ballad and another standard or piece of my choosing. I'm looking for...
