Frederic H. Weiner Inc. Prices are subject to change without notice. Be the first to review this item. See for yourself why Jazz Greats like Michael Brecker and Dave Liebman have endorsed this book as one of the most concise and easy to digest collection of solos ever published! Described as a "perfect learning tool for the student of jazz", this book offers powerful sight reading, ear training, swinging and improvisational help.
This book of etudes was created to fill a gap in the musical resources available to the aspiring jazz musician. Its purpose is to demonstrate the concepts of soloing to those students who know their chords and scales but lack the musical vocabulary to create professional-level solos. I have written twelve jazz etudes that are enjoyable to play, yet present some technical challenges.
However, the technical benefits are secondary to the primary purpose of the etudes: to be able to play through the chord changes in a musical manner while clearly expressing the song s harmonic structure. The etudes are based on familiar chord progressions, including blues, rhythm changes, and a variety of common "standard" bar song forms. Also includes: style and analysis section and detailed practice guide for intermediate, advanced and pro-level players.
These etudes focus primarily on medium tempos and demonstrate a melodic approach to soloing with authentic jazz vocabulary. The etudes are catchy, fun to play, and written idiomatically for the saxophone. This book is the perfect follow-up for students who have completed Fishman's Jazz Phrasing for Beginners. His first two books Jazz Saxophone Etudes Vol. The previous released Jazz Saxophone Etudes Volume 2 continued along the same path as his inaugural book.
Greg Fishman s publications are outstanding gems with comprehensive information from explanation to play-along. Not only is the information there for the taking but also Fishman s demonstrations on both tenor and alto saxophone are swinging and flawless. His sound and pitch is something any teacher should have absolutely no trouble telling a student to use as a model while playing along at home.
Fishman sounds equally adept on both the alto and tenor saxophone voices. The two newest books will find their place among saxophonists who are newer to the word of jazz. Jazz Saxophone Etudes Volume 3 and Jazz Phrasing for Beginners by Greg Fishman offer the intermediate and beginner students the same quality of etudes as his first three books. Volume 3 feels much like Volume 1 and 2 however the tempos are decidedly and intentionally slower for younger or less advanced students.
The addition of some bossa novas offer a pleasant contrast not present in his first two etude books. In the preface to of his latest book, Fishman writes, Jazz Phrasing for Beginners is a prequel to my series of intermediate and advanced jazz education books. They are not dumbed down but come out of an entirely different approach. Later he writes, I decided to take a different approach and write simple, catchy tunes with clear melodic development that stand alone as good pieces of music, period, rather than trying to write a simplified version of one of my more advanced pieces.
He certainly succeeded. Each of the new jazz etudes is again named after a different street in Chicago a nice tribute to the place he was born back in Fishman has been playing professionally since age 14 and earned a Masters in Jazz Pedagogy from Northwestern University.
Neither of these accomplishments is lost on the etudes. The ideas presented in this book and those before it represent a dedication to the music called Jazz.
The world-class rhythm section swings hard as Fishman demonstrates each etude succinctly and with great precision. There are many composers, saxophonists, and educators out there who possess these three unique abilities. Often one facet of their musicianship outshines another. Not with Greg Fishman.
Fishman shows he is equally adept at composing, performing and teaching the concepts included in these etudes. Run, do not walk to get all 5 books by Greg Fishman.

Review of Greg Fishman’s “Jazz Saxophone Etudes”
Multi-reedist and educator Greg Fishman has published three volumes of his Jazz Saxophone Etudes series. During an afternoon conversation, Fishman does not need to point out that the array of players, students and their instruments in the shop reflect how he has become a cottage industry himself. Fishman has worked throughout Chicago since he was a teenage professional in the s and has toured the world with jazz legends. He brings these experiences to informative and distinctive instructional books that he wrote and self-published. Along with teaching numerous students in person and via Skype, Fishman recently released the album So You Say. His performances and teaching zeal come from the same source.
