Mister Chief

saxophone & piano edition

Composed by: Stephen Davies
Genres: Jazz, Latin


When I see any composition by Stephen Davies I expect to be in for a lot of notes and Mister Chief did not disappoint. This funky new work is for soprano and piano and like many new works is a jazz style. This is a demanding, though well written work. Most of the passages, except for bar 56, will fit nicely under the fingers... eventually. It is around grade eight plus standard and would require a pianist of equal ability. There is an improvised section in the middle of the piece. Works like Mister Chief once again challenge the notion that the saxophone is either a classical or jazz instrument and for that alone is to be recommended.
