Amazing Phrasing is for any tenor saxophone player interested in learning how to improvise and how to improve their creative phrasing. The ideas are divided into three main sections: Harmony - explores scales, arpeggios, chord substitutions, harmonic embellishments, and other harmonic phrasing ideas; Rhythm - covers legato tonguing, swing feel, rhythmic displacement, how to manipulate time and other aspects of rhythmic phrasing; Melody - discusses contour lines, making patterns musical, developing a motif, building a solo, and many other melodic phrasing ideas. The companion CD includes 26 full-band tracks in various musical styles for listening and play along.
