Description

These six pieces from Karen display her trademark versatility, ranging from funk (No.1) and swing (No.4) to two very different traditional arrangements (Nos. 5 & 6). Her characteristic lyricism (No.2) and 'gentleness-with-attitude' (No. 3) are also represented.

This book will be an invaluable resource for younger and beginner quartets because all the titles help develop ensemble skills (rhythmic tightness, phrasing, dynamic control and so on) but are also musically interesting and suitable for performance. Ideally suited to three altos and a tenor, the flexibility of format will make the pieces especially attractive to teachers and others faced with non-standard combinations of saxes.
