Riffateria is workout method based on riffs from famous saxophone artists for the most part. The idea for the book came from frustration as a player myself, because finding material to practice was either boring scales or pop tunes that soon became labored to wade through. These tunes are fresh and loaded with little riffs that made the greats of jazz stand out. The riffs are blended with phrases that are intended to stretch your playing skills, and at the same time, having a fun tune to play. There are fingering patterns that demand you used alternate fingerings. There are runs that reach the top range of the horn and those that plummet to the bottom end of the horn. I think you will really enjoy working with this book.
