I didn't even have time yet to print the sheet music on paper [rolleyes]!Sigh ... it's two days into the month and Claude already has 3 versions posted, while I'm still trying to learn the head .. :evil:
Nice take Tom. Good and full sound, especially in the lower register. You could try to hold the notes a bit longer at places and try to relax your embouchure a bit more in the upper register.This is the 1st take there's no improv just the head in and out withsurpriseise in the middle, I will post an imoprov later, http://www.box.net/shared/mealbszeme8a0bxsupq2
The instructor mentioned that we have a spot in the conservatory's Christmas show if we are interested. He joked that we had an hour to fill in the show, but the corrected himself and said that we could play a couple of pieces if people were on board. Right now it could be an interesting group with two saxes and a bunch of strings but I guess one of the guitarists also plays flute and she has said that she'd bring that along next time.Sounds good Claude . Will you do a kind of concert at the end of the course?
Thanks Peter, I always seem to have a hard time starting off my improv on this tune. I'm starting on the third of the opening chord but it's coming out sounding wrong, I need to figure out why that is. It could be that the biab backing has a different chord entered on that bar than what shows in the real book or I'm missing some music theory piece about that chord but whatever it is it especially throws me at a slow tempo.That sounds also good Claude . The head was played very well, like in your first post. The impro was much better now. When you don't feel or know the chords it helps to stay closer to the melody, or to play longer lines in the lower register and not too much notes. Liked the free phrase you did at the end at 4:50..
