11 duets for saxophone
Author: Matthias Petzold
Publisher: Mel Bay Publications
"This book offers eleven duets for second and third-year alto and tenor saxophone students with some experience in sight reading in the common keys. The pieces were composed in extremely varied styles from jazz to Calypso and from blues to French waltz-musette. Apart from learning different styles of music, the pieces have one common goal- to convey the joy of making music in a small ensemble. The duets can be played with either two alto or two tenor saxes, or with an alto playing the upper voice and a tenor for the lower voice. The transposed parts for the tenor sax 2 are printed in a pull-out segment along with the keyboard/guitar chord progressions in two keys appropriate for the E-flat alto and B-flat tenor parts. This format provides both notation and the chord accompaniment for almost any combination of the two saxes, the exception being tenor sax 1 with alto sax 2. The companion CD offers play-along tracks for both types of saxes. As the two saxophones are recorded in split-track format, one channel can be muted using the balance knob of your stereo, enabling you to play along with either voice on the recording. Due to their melodic and diversified character, these duets are well suited for recitals and often become student favorites. In recital, the duets can be performed with a live pianist or guitarist using the chord progressions provided, or with the piano accompaniment on the CD for E-flat alto lead only. The duets can also be performed effectively by two unaccompanied saxophones."
Great choral masterpiece long considered the noblest, most inspired musical treatment of the crucifixion of Christ. Reprinted from the definitive Breitkopf & Härtel edition.

When Muddy Waters came to London at the start of the '60s, a kid from Boston called Joe Boyd was his tour manager; when Dylan went electric at the Newport Festival, Joe Boyd was plugging in his guitar; when the summer of love got going, Joe Boyd was running the coolest club in London, the UFO; when a bunch of club regulars called Pink Floyd recorded their first single, Joe Boyd was the producer; when a young songwriter named Nick Drake wanted to give his demo tape to someone, he chose Joe Boyd. More than any previous '60s music autobiography, Joe Boyd's White Bicycles offers the real story of what it was like to be there at the time. His greatest coup is bringing to life the famously elusive figure of Nick Drake - the first time he's been written about by anyone who knew him well. As well as the '60s heavy-hitters, this book also offers wonderfully vivid portraits of a whole host of other musicians: everyone from the great jazzman Coleman Hawkins to the folk diva Sandy Denny, Lonnie Johnson to Eric Clapton, The Incredible String Band to Fairport Convention.

Yodel in Hi-Fi
Author: Bart Plantenga
Publisher: University of Wisconsin Pres
Yodel in Hi-Fi explores the vibrant and varied traditions of yodelers around the world. Far from being a quaint and dying art, yodel is a thriving vocal technique that has been perennially renewed by singers from Switzerland to Korea, from Colorado to Iran. Bart Plantenga offers a lively and surprising tour of yodeling in genres from opera to hip-hop and in venues from cowboy campfires and Oktoberfests to film soundtracks and yogurt commercials. Displaying an extraordinary versatility, yodeling crosses all borders and circumvents all language barriers to assume its rightful place in the world of music. “If Wisconsin wasn’t on the yodel music map before, this book puts it there.”—Wisconsin State Journal

Author: Moez Surani
Publisher: Wolsak & Wynn Pub Limited
Reticent Bodies is Toronto author Moez Surani's long-awaited debut collection. Shaped by a childhood spent listening to a mixture of Gujarati, Kutchi, Urdu and Swahili around the kitchen table, while attending a French Immersion school in Toronto, Surani's poems could define the epitome of Canada's ethnic layering. Spare Canadian lyricism is combined with unusual linguistic rhythms and sharp bursts of vibrant imagery in an exceptional poetic debut.
