These ten easy jazz and rock duets are definitely fun, but also provide plenty of material to get your teeth into. Articulations are marked out in full to encourage development of appropriate style and the challenges are distributed equally between the two parts. Useful for teachers wanting to introduce pupils to syncopation.
Double Vision Duets is arranged for two equal saxophones, or an alto and tenor saxophone duo.
The PDF E-Edition bundle comes with scores for both equal and mixed saxophones, and minus-one MP3 play-along tracks for use with Eb saxophones playing from the equal saxophones score, or to use with the mixed parts score playing the lower part on Bb saxophones.
