I meant to put this here earlier but it slipped my mind. Anyways, I released this video about a week ago on my channel, comparing the Series II and the Supreme. I know a lot of people play the Series II and may be curious just how different the Supreme is...this video takes a deep...
Trying to get the hang of the video editing software. This song started life as a jazz tune, but without drums and bass it kinda just sounds like a "contemporary composition," so to speak. Extended usage of one motif and the major scale throughout. Check it out and see if you dig!
Hey everyone! A bunch of people have asked me to do this, so here it is. It's a compilation of a bunch of my Instagram videos playing saxophone, piano, and other instruments! A lot of people who have seen my YouTube videos haven't seen many of my Instagram videos, and that's where I post more...
Hey everyone! Back again with a new video. A lot of people have let me know they really dig the vlog type videos, so here's another! Follow along for a couple gigs in Philly and New York City. I know this is a long one, but I put a lot of work into creating it and tried to include some...
Hello fine people,
Below are three treatments of Aleia das Rãs by Mark Secosh. One is a live concert recording and the other two are different video treatments of the same studio recordings.
I'd love feedback on which one you like best. Thanks!

On my site you can purchase the download with english subtitles. There'll be a book about the same idiom out...
OK, I decided to post the entire Guinness World Record for Circular Breathing, all 47 minutes and 5.5 seconds. It is very long and very boring but you can fast forward through it till the end.. In my rehearsals I went up to 1 hour 8 minutes and 22 seconds.. That is my personal best time. You...
this is my first time posting in this community so I apologize if I am in the wrong forum here but I am trying to track down a particular video of the Brecker Brothers. I don't remember much about the video aside from the fact that it was a live recording at a concert for the...

Steve Coleman has just launched his M-BASE WAYS website.
Steve has been teaching his unique music workshops for 15 or so years so finally putting things in web-friendly video packages makes a lot of sense. The preview videos make the full 3-hour packages pretty darn...
Challenging New Altissimo Performance Étude - Brass Violin
The music is available for free download from my website (www.ChristopherCreviston.com), as is a chart of my favorite altissimo fingerings.
This little exercise might make a great virtuosic encore piece - the last lick...
I just posted my newest "1-man sax quartet" video, this time of my spicy new arrangement of the ***** Spiritual "Wade in the Water."
Happy African-American History Month (a few months early)... :-)
best wishes from Pennsylvania,
Hey guys, the soul-world-rock-jazz-sillyness band, Snarky Puppy, that I played with for years, is back down in DFW for a couple shows. They're playing tonight in Denton at Hailey's, where we cut our teeth, and tomorrow at the Prophet Bar in downtown Dallas. I won't be able to play with them...
