  12. Sheet Music & Transcriptions

    James Carter, my all time favorite saxophonist, is known for his ability to "shred" and make unusual but amazing noises on the saxophone. I was amazed by watching his improv (link below). In this video, he plays licks, runs, and while doing so, he manages to implement little things like...
