Three Pieces For Saxophone Quartet. (Commissioned by Frank Masseo and The New Jersey Saxohpne Quartet). By Bob Mintzer. For Bb Soprano saxophone, Eb Alto Saxophone, Eb Baritone Saxophone. Saxophone Quartet. Grade 6. Score and Set of Parts. Duration 10:40.
This grade 6 SATB quartet in three movements draws upon the jazz, classical and R&B traditions. Knowing how to handle swing 8th notes, a slow choral, and an even 8th note funk groove is essential. Lots of rhythmical interplay among parts will be the greatest challenge in rehearsals, but the work will be well worth the effort. When it all comes together, why not invite the audience up to dance on the last movement? Total duration 10:40.
