I'm a 9th Grader in my High School Jazz Band. My teacher recently gave us our new song, "The Michael Brecker Waltz" and he gave me the Tenor Sax solo part. I don't have any trouble with the written parts, just the improvisation part. I have previous experience improvising with (especially blues scales) but very little with strict chord playing. I just have trouble finding the right notes and putting them good rhythm patterns. The chords in the song are Dma 9, G6(9), Cmi7, F9, Bb ma9, Eb ma9,Gmi9, Gmi7, Fma9, Bmin7, C9, Emi7, C13, G13. I don't know if my director thinks I know this stuff like the back of my hand, but I don't want to give up and disappoint him. I also wanted to know good practice techniques so I can get this all down. I know that this may seem very simplistic to many of you, but I'm still a beginner. Any help is greatly appreciated.
