I just got back from a family vacation and was dreading picking up my sax and playing after having about two weeks off. I decided I needed some inspiration, so I found this video on Youtube to transcribe this morning. It is of Dave O’Higgins and Max Ionata tearing up a minor blues on tenor saxophone for a CD they have coming out in 2019 called “Tenors of our Time”.
Max Ionata and Dave O’Higgins
Max Ionata and Dave O’Higgins are two of my favorite players from the other side of the Atlantic. Ever time they release a recording or video clip I am one of the first to check it out.
This transcription is of them taking a quick two choruses each on a minor blues. Although it goes by quick, there are some great lines and phrases in here to work on. Keep an eye out for their album that is to be released in 2019 and if you want to find out more about either of these great players check out Max Ionata’s website or Dave O’Higgins website for more information and to check out their other recordings. Thanks for the great playing guys! Hope you enjoy it! Feel free to comment below if you wish………
