    New Video up on #ProSaxTips This weeks video I cover basic 3 part horn harmony over Coltranes' Bessies Blues with Soprano, Alto, and Tenor Sax. These are things Pro Sax Player do, usually on the fly while on the band stand. I slow it down and show how I did this when I first started out...
  2. Tips and Techniques
    As far as tone I’m really trying to achieve to get a similar tone to that mid 60s Coltrane/Wayne shorter like tone. Like most would agree, I don’t necessarily want to blame it on equipment but could it be that? I currently use a Jody Jazz HR 7* with La Voz Medium Hard reeds. Do you have any...

    Hello guys, i made this transcription in the last two weeks. It is the hardest I have done to this point and this time I purpusefully refrained from writing it down or using slowing down software. It´s not perfect, but this is what I managed to do: https://instaud.io/3aey I really look...

    I have just finished working on an e-book containing 10 Coltrane solos on standards from his work with Miles Davis. I made sure to choose solos that you cannot find in any other books or online anywhere. Here is a taster video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHF6k2brhb8 (my video making...

    Hi Everyone, I want to share with you a small webpage I made in honor of Coltrane and the homes in which he lived. It was inspired by Lewis Porter’s wonderful Coltrane biography (a must have). This may be interesting to only the most hardcore fans, but I wanted to share it anyway. The page...
  6. Playing Songs
    More specifically, using the harmonic language Coltrane was using from about 1965-1967 over a fixed chord progression. What is the best way to begin to do this? If you take a late Coltrane solo, you get a lot of minor pentatonic language, primarily remaining on one chord, however occasionally...

    My recording of Coltrane's "Wise One" from my cd "Soul To Go!" is included in this broadcast. Here's the link... http://www.prx.org/pieces/127208-blue-dimensions-c33-coltrane-s-music-today

    This is a track from my new CD "Soul To Go!". It's a cover of Coltrane's "Wise One" featuring myself on tenor along with Ed Cherry on guitar , Radam Schwartz on organ and Vince Ector on drums. I'm playing my Mark VI 105xxx with a STM no USA Florida link 9* for those who are into such things...

    I saw a video of Ravi Coltrane at The Village Vanguard and it looks like he's playing a VI to me- no biggie but interesting as every other video i've seen him playing on a BA or SBA I believe (?). Anyway he sounds great- I'll finish watching the video but it sounds great-...

    I thought I'd record my tenor (my weaker saxophone) and play a piano duet of Peace on Earth. I recorded sax first then recorded piano. I am not a pianist so yeah, I'm just mimicking the Alice Coltrane delicate thing and at more intense moments do the McCoy Tyner heavy bass pedal thing. As for...
  12. Jazz and Improvisation
    Wow. I just discovered the existence of these recording and immediately bought the deluxe version of a Love Supreme. I was also please to see a live version in France which I'm actually finding I prefer over the original recording. The real standout for me though was the sextet version that...
  13. Jazz and Improvisation
    Lately I've been trying to expand my listening to some of Trane's later stuff and just bought Ascension. I'd actually had it for about a week but i wanted to take the 40 minutes to really experience it. I really loved it and it was such an intense experience that actually was a challenge to...
  14. Brand Name Players ...
    I saw this thread on another site but it was closed. I can't believe the number of people who prefer Getz's playing over Coltrane's, calling Coltrane emotionless (I understand the avant garde stuff is a bit out there but not Coltrane as a whole). Apparently Coltrane said of Getz "we'd all...

    Hi everyone I thought some of you might enjoy some of these video clips from a jazz vespers service that I recently lead in our church in Cambridge, England. There is a video of the hymns via the church Facebook page here (you might have to scroll down a bit)...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kotK9FNEYU Here is the most amazing you Tube video showing Coltrane's Giant Steps head and solo note for note as it is played. totally brilliant video. What do you all think?
  19. Teaching
    My kid is going to audition for a local jazz school and Giant Steps is the audition material. She's on tenor. She has around 6 weeks to prep. The solo is a fast one. What would a teacher be looking for with this song? The ability to not get lost? Know when to breath? (its not the kind of solo...

    From his classic collaboration with Duke Ellington... This track is an amazing and innovative take on blues in G (tenor key), and hey: you'll actually be able to play this one! Check out the analysis and the transcription, and tell me what you think... It's here: Harder Bop!
