Eric Anderson, Editor

We are so excited to present you with this new, fully online publication. All my life, I’ve participated in the time-honored tradition of music education, sharing my knowledge with my students just as my professors shared their knowledge with me. The IJM widens the pedagogical circle for any musician willing to learn, publishing academic and performance-based insights by seasoned musicians, educators and ambitious students. You will find articles for different instruments in their respective magazines, such as this one. You are able to access, submit, and review articles on our IJM website (https://ijm.education).

Sincerely,

playing outside harmony

Let’s Go Outside!

This article is aimed at the advancing jazz saxophonist. While not going into too much detail on any particular topic, I wanted to give an overview of how one might develop fluidity in non-diatonic sounds. I feel that the following concepts can provide ample material for the improviser who is looking to expand their harmonic/melodic vocabulary. It should be stated that having a good sound, time feel, and technical agility is our primary goal. No amount of advanced harmonic techniques can cover for a deficiency in the basics.
