As THE HORN PLACE says on line;

An invaluable text that gives the 'real world' saxophonist a practical way to learn technique and style. Tim's hands-on approach covers all the basics, including hardware, warm-ups, special effects, altissimo notes, the blues style, soloing over progressions, modal progressions, practical licks and lines, and much more. It gives today's working saxophonist invaluable tools, study material, and insight into the techniques used in pop, rock, funk, and R&B music.


Read a review on line...from a happy customer ;


Hot Rock Sax Review, April 21, 2003 By James (Florida) -
I was suggested to get this book by Greg Piccolo. I saw Greg in Rhode Island and asked him about flutter tounging and growling sax effects. He told me about this book by his friend Tim Price and how great it was and how it helped his playing. He was so sincere about it that i went out the next day and picked it up. This book is a gold mine of Rock and R&B sax ideas. Without question it is worth every penny and a big help. It is so focused and easy to understand. Every sax player interested in Rock and Blues should have it.

I was just working out of this book this week. There are some altissimo exercises that I like a lot. This is a great book with a lot of very practical information in it.
Thanks Tim:salute:

Neil- THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I'm thinking on what you said- via resources and let me think on that. There's a few things running thru my mind right now.


BTW- Sometimes I get to posts late- bear with me. There's days I'm not home for 2-3 days via gigs etc then I come and sift thru stuff. So I didn't forget just making sure the laundry, cat box, lawn mower, car insurance, students and all are in place. haha...Then I can SOTW. I sleep at times eratic via driving at night, and all that. So I'm posting this 'round 4:00 in the morn. My system is still in transit from travel and I'm in Pennsylvania.


Check out the YOU TUBE....Neil. The BLASTERS...with the great Steve Berlin on bari and LEE ALLEN.

Berlin is a buddy- and so folks know- the Bari is a Super 20 King with a STRATHON mouthpiece. Berlin sounds great!!!
Lee is something else. I'm a big David Alvin fan- ever hear the stuff he did w/ Sun Ra and his stuff. Pretty cool.:cool: :cool:

This is just BLASTERS but no horns- still strong R& R.

David is a big RA fan as well.


Or dig MEL COLLINS with King Crimson here;

Pretty cool rock sax from a different corner.

Anyhow- Thanks JL and Kritavi & Bluesax for nice words.

ROCK ON:)
