If your looking for a nice warm up / sax sound study-look here;
http://www.timpricejazz.com/lessons/sax_warmup.pdf

A basic study moved through six steps. Then I included one of my own
based on a variation of some of the first six.I think it's always good
for all of us to go back to a basic pattern study to clear our ears and
refresh our
chops. Look at all six shapes. Check it here;

I've been practicing that sax warm-up every day and teaching it to my students for about 3 years now! Thanks again, Tim.
YO DP- Thank you. Also- I want to do that horn hang you spoke of. I got kinda swamped in stuff- I'll Email you my phone#,, I got an idea too that Freddy Lipsius wants
to come to my home to hang/play etc. We were speaking of sax quartets he wrote. So I figure you and Skip Spratt are both perfecto for this. we could jam too as I got
a great drummer in my hood ( X-Grover, Roy Ayres, John Blake, Philly Soul ) and a savage young teenager who plays GREAT upright bass. If it don't happen now- it will. Be in touch DP!!! :)

There is so much bebop language in all of the patterns you posted Tim.
Ora si scava cavalletta!! :)

The roots of any dialect are and is based on- BASICS. And application of them. APPLICATION. With a capitol A !
Cognitive skills are the underlying tools that enable us to successfully play, create and react to things on the bandstand.
My goal is to get folks " on the set" playing...not just lecturing a buncha folks about some silliness. REALITY.

I made a list I'll share with you, LISTEN and hear where the lines/bop approaches and shapes are in this " time period".
You will be surprised, but also there's a nice listening lesson within the music too. ENJOY! :)

Charlie Parker (& Dizzy Gillespie) Bird and Diz (1950)

Sarah Vaughan (& Clifford Brown) Sarah Vaughan (1954)

Horace Silver Horace Silver and the Jazz Messengers

Charles Mingus Pithecanthropus Erectus (1956)

Sonny Rollins Saxophone Colossus (1956)

Thelonious Monk Monk's Music (1957)

"Cannonball" Adderly Somethin' Else (1958)

Milt Jackson & John Coltrane Bags & Trane (1959)

THEN CAME THIS!!!!! >>>>Miles Davis Kind of Blue (1959)

Yes! One variation I've been doing lately is to play the higher notes in each bar alternating between using the octave key and not using it. Adding some overtone really gets the horn warmed up nicely I find.

Great! I took lessons with Fred at Berklee, but I wasn't putting in the hours I should have and kind of embarrassed myself that semester. I'd love a chance to get back some dignity! LOL
