Blues and the Bent Side Key
I came across this video the other day and was totally blown away. The video is by Los Angeles saxophonist Jeff Driskill, who’s played with some of the best jazz groups in L.A. including Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, Chris Walden, Bob Florence, The John Daversa Progressive Big Band as well as The Les Hooper Band.
Inspired by the videos from the band Pomplamoose, Jeff recorded and then edited his own video which shows multiple simultaneous clips of himself playing the alto, tenor, and baritone sax parts in the quartet composition.
If you’re interested in performing this piece with your own sax quartet. hop on over to Jeff’s website to pick up the sheet music for yourself.
Besides being fun to watch, the best part is Jeff’s killer playing and writing, so enjoy and let me know what you think!
