Uncommon Etudes From Common ScalesUncommon Etudes from Common Scales will better equip students and challenge improvisers of all levels with etudes that travel through all keys using common chord types. Also, expand your melodic and creative ability as an improviser and composer by applying Contrast to diatonic phrases! The etudes are suited for C, Bb and Eb treble clef instruments. The appendix features the changes for all etudes in the correct transposition to accompany Bb and Eb instruments. This volume of etudes by Mike Rossi is packed with appealing, swinging, modern, modal, model melodies. Like Dr. Rossi´s previous volume, Contrast and Continuity, this is a further contribution to learning contemporary jazz vocabulary, based on swing articulation and occasionally venturing into odd time signatures. Although intended for individual practise as preparation for soloing, selections from these etudes were performed by saxophone ensembles accompanied by rhythm section at recent jazz education conferences I attended and they sounded great. Like worthwhile etudes in every tradition, Uncommon Etudes focus on particular instructional outcomes while revealing the musical insights of a thoughtful and talented composer. Prof. Darius Brubeck, Honorary Research Associate, University of Kwazulu-Natal and IAJE Board: Africa/Middle East Representative. Following in the footsteps of his acclaimed Contrast and Continuity in Jazz Improvisation, Michael Rossi has crafted a book of etudes that are, at once, as educationally stimulating as they are musically fulfilling. A scintillating approach and a valuable addition to every improvising musician´s resource library! Chuck Owen, University of South Florida Distinguished University Professor Artistic Director, Center for Jazz Composition President, IAJE. Uncommon Etudes is the secret and cure for students and pros alike when practicing scales in all keys. These etudes are firstly MUSIC and also FUN to play. Combined with the etudes is Rossi´s unique Contrast concept, which transforms already hip-sounding, scale-based phrases into a multi-coloured CREATIVE sound and language. The virtual chord changes found in the appendix, allows concert instruments the opportunity to comp for transposing instruments, another excellent addition to an already great book. Ulrich Susse Composer. Once again. As he did with his last book, Contrast and Continuity in Jazz Improvisation, Mike has been studious in presenting material that is beyond the theoretical, but has practical and immediate use as a means of adding vocabulary to one´s playing. David Liebman. Uncommon Etudes from Common Scales by Professor Mike Rossi is a comprehensive addition to the field! This systematic method challenges, and intensifies, creative improvisational development utilizing melodic and rhythmic contrast. Exploring harmonic applications and related phrase development are strongly encouraged and integrated to internalize and expand the improviser´s perspective, fluency ... and musicality!

Buon Giorno Le MarcheBuon Giorno Le Marche was inspired by a number of events that took place in 2011. After a 2010 tour to the Abruzzo region of Italy where my grandfather originates from, I performed a number of concerts in the summer of 2011 with Italian bassist Gabriele Pesaresi who originates from Le Marche. Gabriele is one of Italy´s greatest bass players and a most beautiful person. Gabriele can play in any musical context setting, which reflects his outstanding musicianship. The bass line was written with him in mind and for him. The melody was inspired by Italy´s rich operatic canzone history. The starting note (Ab) of the bass and melody reflects the rich tenor range of the voice. On the saxophone, the low Bb has a richness to it that invokes the whole body when playing it. As an artist for Rampone & Cazzani, I find the sound and richness of the low Bb to be unlike any other saxophone I have experienced, and believe Rampone & Cazzani saxophones reflect the true Italian voice. I was introduced to Claudio Zolla of Rampone & Cazzani in 2005 by my dear friend Dennis Tini (Wayne State University). Claudio Zolla and his wonderful family are dedicated to making some of the best hand-made saxophones in the world. The region of Le Marche is a fascinating area of Italy. Just north of Abruzzo and along the Adriatic, it is one of Italy´s best kept secrets when one thinks of the great treasures Italy has to offer. The piece has a melancholic feel to it that reflects the dual meaning of Buon Giorno, which in Italian can mean hello and goodbye. For my wife Diane and I, we were happy to see and experience this part of Italy, but also sad to leave. This piece is rich with harmonic challenges that support the melody which should be played in a relaxed and legato manner. The rhythm section can play in a floating manner off the bass line as an anchor with the drummer playing an ´Elvin Jones´ big three feel. Pay special attention to the dynamics as stated. The tutti/solo section is used as material for improvisation in addition to working well as a tutti line to play after the last solo. This piece is dedicated to my dear friends Gabriele Pesaresi and Claudio Zolla, and to the people of Le Marche, Italy. Buon Giorno Le Marche is part of an Italian Suite published by Advance Music that also includes Arrivo in Abruzzo and Scungilli.
