I was asked to buy this book by my saxophone teacher and I have been very pleased with it. I had a bit of sticker shock at the price - it's quite expensive for a relatively small number of pieces, but it is well worth it. The pieces are all very interesting and the backing tracks are outstandingly good. The alto sax part has both the head and guide tones for soloing, so the book is a good learning tool for both the melody and improvisation. As well as the alto sax lead part there is pull-out piano accompaniment, which would be very useful for playing with a pianist. My one gripe is that the accompaniments are too short and only allow for the head and one chorus of improvisation to be played.
