For Bb Instruments (Tenor/Sop Sax, Trumpet, etc) Only:

I’m really excited to share this unique play along project for my 2020 album All Figured Out! Included in this project is the digital sheet music for all 9 tunes on the album, as well as 9 play along tracks that include the entire original recordings MINUS all my featured tenor solos and melodies (and excluding other solos as well), allowing you to “jump into my shoes” and be the star of the show! (Note: To hear the recordings with my original sax parts in the mix, you can purchase the album on my www.derekbrownsax.com website, or stream it elsewhere)

The included digital sheet music contains all my various melodies and intros and outros, as well as the chord progressions for all my improvised solo sections. Additionally you’ll see smaller notes that represent various melody lines and parts played by other instruments, when I was not playing anything on the recordings. This lets you enjoy playing throughout the entire album, saxophone part or not.

Some of my “melodies” for these tunes were entirely improvised (like throughout “Hoping for the Best” and my various solo intros), which is why some parts are some much more advanced than other melodies/parts throughout the album. Of course, always feel free to edit parts or make up your own!

I really hope you enjoy playing along with this album, and can sense a bit of the joy I had while recording this project with the Holland Concert Jazz Orchestra! - Derek

Since I recorded All Figured Out entirely on a Bb tenor sax, this Eb version of this play along attempts to best match the correct octaves of the original notes wherever possible. Wherever the original tenor notes were too low, the Eb part raises them an octave.

I really hope you enjoy playing along with this album, and can sense a bit of the joy I had while recording this project with the Holland Concert Jazz Orchestra!

Ensemble Sheet Music

"TACTiLE" Sax Ensemble Arrangment
  • "TACTiLE" Sax Ensemble Arrangment
In cart Not available Out of stock
$50.00

-Composed by Derek Brown. -Upper Intermediate Level -Written for 8 saxophonists (double saxophone quartet: 2 sop, 2 alt, 2 tenor, 2 bari), although additional saxophones can double any of the parts -Includes 3 pages of performance notes, individual parts, and full score (44 pages total). -Approx duration: 4 min.

As the title “TACTiLE” hints at, this piece consists entirely of pitches and percussive sounds created only by the saxophones and hands of the players. You read that correctly, no breath or mouthpiece-in-mouth required the ENTIRE piece! Using the techniques detailed below, the 8 saxophonists are required to think of themselves perhaps more like a drum line than a traditional double saxophone quartet, key- slapping and clicking their way through a rhythmic and surprisingly harmonic adventure unlike any the saxophonist has likely been on.

For additional help, I’ve made very detailed demonstrations of all the techniques on my Youtube channel. You can find these by going to: DerekBrownSax.com/TACTILE

Composed by Derek Brown. For saxophone ensemble. 9 parts (2 sop, 2 alt, 3 tenor, 2 bari), although the parts can be doubled or tripled where necessary. Includes 3-page performance notes, individual parts, and full score (59 pages total). Advanced Level. All parts are expected to use various forms of extended techniques, like singing, stomping, slap tonguing and double-tonguing. The tenor 3 part (which Derek plays in the original recording), by far features the most extended techniques in his unique "BEATBoX SAX" style. A simplified version of this (broken into 2 separate parts) will be included shortly (and emailed to you when it's finished). Approx duration: 9 min.
