I'm looking for mixed duets with sax (or mixed groups with sax); some good stuff for small group contest. Last year I did Epitaphe de Jean Harlow (alto and flute) and it went over well, so I'm looking to try some more (not necessarily just flute).
In my efforts I've run across: (in case anybody else is looking) the Percussion Plus Project www.percussionplusproject.com/
and the Uwharrie clarinet/percussion duet (some are for sax as well and can be played on sop) www.uwsp.edu/music/people/faculty/arosen/uwharrie/uwharrie.htm
a sop and timpani duet from Larry Lockwood www.lockwoodmusic.com/
and a couple others. If anybody wants the link for Epitaphe I'd be happy to dig it up.
Wow. I just realized that those are all with percussion. Hmm. You see my problem. Any help is appreciated.

I assume you know the Houston Person / Ron Carter collaboration -- several albums of just sax and bass, notably Dialogue.

I didn't, actually. Thanks, I'll look in to it. Anything else?

Oh, and I finally remembered: an older album (1967), The Lee Konitz Duets, on which he plays with a different musician (and a different instrument) on each tune. Should have been called "Lee Konitz Copies Willie Nelson" :D

What am I saying?:shock:

Do you know where I can get the sheet music for any of these? So far I haven't been able to find it.

The heads, of course, are readily available. These particular versions: haven't a clue.

Sorry, but what do you mean by head?

I can't seem to find the sheets for these duets, so does anybody have more to suggest?

The head is the basic tune -- the melody. So, for the Houston Person/Ron Carter "Doxy," look up "Doxy" in The Real Book (or learn it off a Rollins cd! Or off the Person/Carter cd). I can't say whether anyone has actually transcribed any of these duets.

Hmm. Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way. I've found nothing in the way of music for the Lee Konitz duets, and I for this I'd better stay away from jazz anyway. But I'm thankful for the lead and am looking into getting the album, so thanks, Reedsplinter.

I would be shocked if there were any published transcriptions of any of this material. Somebody out there might have done it for personal use, though.
