Blues and the Bent Side Key
I came across this video the other day and was totally blown away. The video is by Los Angeles saxophonist Jeff Driskill, who’s played with some of the best jazz groups in L.A. including Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, Chris Walden, Bob Florence, The John Daversa Progressive Big Band as well as The Les Hooper Band.
Inspired by the videos from the band Pomplamoose, Jeff recorded and then edited his own video which shows multiple simultaneous clips of himself playing the alto, tenor, and baritone sax parts in the quartet composition.
If you’re interested in performing this piece with your own sax quartet. hop on over to Jeff’s website to pick up the sheet music for yourself.
Besides being fun to watch, the best part is Jeff’s killer playing and writing, so enjoy and let me know what you think!

About the AuthorI've been playing the sax since the late 80's, but my musical journey has run quite the gamut. The musical rap sheet includes tours with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and reggae master Half Pint, center stage at the L.A. Music Center, cozy cafes, raucous night clubs, gear-drenched studios, and the pinnacle of any musician's career - playing weddings in New Jersey! (duh). There's a lot of other stuff too, but you should be reading these blog posts and leaving comments instead. Now off you go!
