Are YOU ready for the Knuckle Down Challenge?

‘They look, as always with your pieces, interesting & challenging & fun too.’ Kyle Horch

’15 More Crazy Jazz Studies, by that master of cool writing, Chris Gumbley. Rhythm and control across the instrument will really benefit from these studies. Each has a top tip to help master them. Fun titles make me realise that I’m only 50% as witty as Chris Gumbley.’ Gerard McChrystal

’15 More Crazy Studies looks like another great little book for sax players… excellently presented, with an attractive cover, and well laid out, with helpful instructions for teachers/students for each piece.’ Rob Buckland
