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.
