Rock'n'Roll and Rhythm & Blues are not only linked by an audible but also by a cultural bond. Both derive directly from the blues and live from the very special, individual sound of their protagonists. Driving beats, crisp riffs, heavy solos - here the life-feeling grooves for generations!
From Earl Bostic or King Curtis to David Sanborn and Albie Donnelly, the musical band spans from the 1940s to the present day. What counts is less technical talent than a distinctive, often raw, wild sound, catchy melodies and an expression that gets under your skin - Dirty Saxophone Sessions that wrote history.
Dirty Saxophone Sessions by GERNOT DECHERT is a creative mix of a live play-along and a very informative workshop in book form. You get lots of exercises, valuable tips and tricks, and finally seven groovy pieces in which you apply what you have learned. In addition, there are workouts in which you can work on different topics such as rhythm or articulation.
