    I haven’t ordered it yet. Will probably wait until after it is released.

    @mel – had a look at some pages of this book as advertised, and it looks to be very interesting. Going to pre-order it and save some £’s

    Now that this book is out, Has anyone bought this book? If so, how do you rate it.

    Having just resumed playing the sax after an 8 week break, i opted out of buying this book. i don’t pariculary want to buy another book about how to play the sax, or what i need to be doing right on the sax etc.. as i have a great experienced sax teacher.

    Right now it’s back to basic grade one work on the sax, until my embouchure has recovered.

    I remember seeing a BBC documentary about John Harle about twenty five years back. He was at the Royal College of music. It covered his progress with him getting a 100% pass mark for his rendition of ” Deep Purple ” He played it an alto sax. All very classical but remarkable.

    I imagine the book will be pretty deep, but he’s a consummate musician ; probably heavy, but totally together
