What is the best music genre for the alto?
LOL, my sentiments exactly. Actually, I voted "Bop" since I do think the alto fits very nicely in that genre. I mean, after all, just listen to Charlie Parker (then again, how many Charlie Parkers are there?). And it also is fine for most jazz. The alto is fast and fluid. In the right hands it has a great voice.Bootman said:You also left out, leave the alto at home and take a real sax like tenor, bari or bass to the gig instead.
