Paul Rogers five-string double bass
music was on cassettes sitting around on the shelf so please excuse
some hiss and occasional pre-echo. I believe this music worthy of release
as it was a relatively short time (in the long history of our mostly
improvising duo) that our music was based around written folk melodies'

This new Duns CD is a CD book containing, as it says on the tin, sixty studies for saxophone in PDF format. This is an enlarged revision of the his now out of print 31 Studies for Saxophone. It comes with a couple of extras but otherwise no sleeve notes or frills. That's it - go study!
From the introduction to 31 Studies: 'I hope this study book will give saxophonists a chance to develop a fresh approach to playing, whilst improving embouchure and technique. A form of musical weightlifting these studies will improve the player's tone and develop stamina. There are some large intervals that can be pretty tough and some harmonics which could be tricky to play, especially for the soprano, so play them down the octave if necessary. There are no time signatures or key signatures and no naturals, so each note is played as written with a sharp or a flat affecting only the note that it is assigned to.'
Also note the issue of Duns records DLE64-67 now in stock, plus a DVD with Tony Orrell, plus Deep Joy quadruple CD back in stock for those quick enough off the mark!
