Safer Sax

saxophone quartet edition

Composed by: Nigel Wood
Genres: Jazz, Swing


This is a stunning piece. Safer Sax may only last a few minutes (not unlike the real thing some might say) but it is uplifting, dynamic, virtuosic and an absolute winner with audiences. It requires virtuosic and experienced players as well as a lot of practise. It's important to get your rhythm right in the middle section otherwise the final climax may not be as effective as Nigel Wood intended. It features improvisation for soprano and alto and includes a transcription of Saxtet's original ones. Safer Sax will get those horns red hot... as the actress said to the ...!
