Outside – with George Garzone
“The notes below derived from accounts
of lessons with the great American
saxophonist George Garzone. At first
glance, Garzone appears to offer a
different approach to the prescriptions of
the 4 note-groupings and transpositions.
Some students emphasise his emphasis
on intuition explaining that he has
“listened and played so much tonal
music, he does utilizes tonal scales and
triads, but he doesn’t approach the
music with any kind of systematic ways.
It’s all intuitive for him”.
However, a great deal of practice is required!”
