Publisher's note:The study book 'Sax Scorchers' is a pioneering collaboration between the familiar world of hard-copy music publishing and the tremendous new energy of creative music on the web. The inspiration for this book of 20 studies began traditionally enough, with the success of our existing saxophone study books, Karen Street's, 'Street Beats', and Chris Gumbley's, '15 Crazy Jazz Studies' both of which now appear on the saxophone syllabuses of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
