New Book for Saxophone
My new book will come out on May 25th, and is available for pre-order now! I am very excited about this project, a book for diatonic scale patterns taken from Bach's solo works. It is a great work out for all instruments, and a wealth of material relatable to improvisation. I recently wrote a short article about the book for The Best Saxophone Website Ever.
Jon De Lucia Octet
To celebrate the release of the book, the Octet will be performing some fugue inspired material on May 29th at Sir D's Lounge in Brooklyn. See the event page here. Michael Steinman has been kind enough to record this group several times, here is a clip from our last show at Greenwich House Music.
