Alto Saxophone Audio Example: Pop Alto Sax
Description: Sax Bridge and Outro (end)
CD - Smooth Jazz Classics CD by Greg Vail - Song - You're The Biggest Part Of Me by David Pack of Ambrosia
Comments: The Alto Sax carries all the melody on this track so there is very little blowing solo action. The first part of the Audio is from the Sax Bridge. the Alto has the lead and I arranged the sax section arround the lead line. The Yamaha Black Lacquer 875 is the primary sound, with 2 tracks of the Silver Plated 875 panned hard left and right for a big sound. The second part of the clip is the very end when the Alto plays over the outro with a short cadenza. Studio Recording.

Alto Sax Sample Sound Clip: Alto Sax Interlude 1
Description: An Interlude is usually 4-8 maybe 16 bars, or a mini solo section between 2 melody parts in the song. This was the first Interlude Clip.

Alto Saxophone Sound Clip: Alto Sax Interlude 2
Description: This was the second Interlude Clip.
CD - Song: Christmas The Hymns - Joy to the World
Comments: Studio Session, Greg Vail Pop Alto. The Solo was earlier in the Sound Clips above. These 2 Interludes show off one of the things sax players have to do on CDs - fill in the boring part. They end up sounding like little mini solos.



Alto Sax Sound Clips: Big Band Lead Alto
Description: Lead Alto in a Big Band, Old School sound
CD - Song: Big Band Christmas - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Comments: This is a fun CD for me because I got to play all the Saxes! The standard Big Band has 5 Saxes consisting of 2 Alto Saxes, 2 Tenor Saxes and a Bari Sax. I am on all 5 throughout this CD. This clip features the Sax Section on a familiar tune.



Alto Saxophone Sound Clip: Pop Alto Ballad
Description: Breakdown - kind of Solo Section
CD - Song: The Gospel Truth - Only The Lord of Love
Comments: A Studio Session featuring a short solo that has to go from very soft to very expressive in a short time. This song had pretty extreme loud and soft changes and the Alto really hit the spot.

Alto Sax Sound Clip: Latin Alto Clip 2
Description: Up beat Latin - Outro - End Section
