COMPOSITIONS FOR ALTO/BARITONE SAX AND PIANO

RED VEST MAN

Solo alto/baritone sax with piano accompaniment

Red Vest Man is composed for legendary cornet player Buddy Bolden, one of the first jazz musicians. He always played wearing a red vest, hence the title.The piece takes the form of a mournful New Orleans funeral march followed by a lively New Orleans second line style.While a saxophone solo in an improvised style has been written, there are also chord symbols for the saxophone player to improvise their own solo.
If you are new to improvising, try taking some of the written out ideas and playing around with them to form your own solo. Chord symbols have also been included in the piano part during the improvisation sections.
