Tenor Saxophone part from Three Movement Bouncer II (alto&tenor sax)

Composer
Duration
3 minutes
Genre
Jazz music

In this set of three pieces I have tried to create a jazz and baroque fusion playable by flexible instrumentation – flute, oboe (or clarinet/violin) and piano (the ‘classical’ version), or trumpet (or alto saxophone), tenor saxophone, piano, bass and drums. Fusion of this kind seems to work best when classical structure and devices are infused with jazz idiom – this lends contemporary ‘streetwise’ vigour to old aesthetics. The alternative, fusing classical idiom with jazz structures is less natural – a bit like abandoning a sheltered spinster in a nightclub on the wrong side of town (admittedly, previously sheltered spinsters may have un-guessed resources…). Within this paradigm, the challenge was to create a flexible style that would sound credible - not too much like classical instruments trying to ‘tough up’ to play jazz, or jazz instruments behaving themselves while in church.

This version is intended for jazz quintet: there is no specific drum part (I prefer drummers to be creative - the drummer can annotate the bass part and use that as a guide) and, preferably, the solos should be improvised.

Note that the score has been designed to act as the piano part – it is not necessary to purchase the separate piano part (which has not been formatted).

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
