100 Ultimate Blues Riffs for Eb instruments, the Beginner Series by musician, educator and world renowned author Andrew D. Gordon is an exhaustive guide to introduce beginner students to the various phrases or "riffs" that make up Blues saxophone playing, both for rhythmic and soloing standpoint.
This book is ideal for the beginner to intermediate music student with most of the exmples notated in the easier keys. Besides learning how to play Blues riffes the book is a useful tool for sight reading exercises with many different rhythms.
The 12 bar Blues progression and he Blues scale, in Andrew's opinion, the two most important aspects of playing the Blues is explained in detail as well as "straight" and "swing" rhythms.
Included with this book is an audio CD that contains all the riffs, recorded twice: first, saxophone with piano, guitar, bass and drums; and second, rhythm section only, of piano, guitar, bass & drums so you can practice playing along with the rhythm section.
Frank Villafranca, who recorded the saxophone riffs, says: "Very cool grooves, melodic, and motif tailored riffs, fun to play. I hope you enjoy playing them as much as I did."
