Solo work

A Passion for the Tenor Saxophone

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit in early 2020, it sadly became evident that there wouldn't be much playing with other musicians in a live setting for some time.  This promted me to spend more time on some solo work, particularly focussing on the tenor sax and loop pedal.  I usually use my tenor as the primary tool for writing for Zenith which is why a lot of the solo music I write with the loop pedal turns into music performed by the band. 


Recently, I have started to write with the solo sound of the tenor in mind.  As soon as my local studio opened for Covid safe, socially distant recordings I went straight in to record blip and glitch.  


I am looking forward to continuing to build on this repertoire over the coming weeks and months.  New releases will appear here and on YouTube.  The sheet music for all this music is avaiable either through Samek Music or June Emerson.  If it is not yet available then please to get in touch and I'll send it.
