Great Jazz sound – minor over dominant

3 great minor sounds to play on dominant chords
Adding vocabulary to your playing is very important.
The more ways you are able to get around in the changes of a tune, the more flexible you are in your playing, the more options you have the easier it is to make the best choice in your music.
You want to be able to move freely around, you want to react to what the piano player throws at you when playing, you want to move outside the key and surprise your fellow musicians and the audience with a sudden hip move. 
Getting more options in how to play and improvise on dominant chords is a massive addon to your flexibility.

How to connect yout technique to your playing

SCALE FUNCTIONS – PRACTICE LIKE THIS IS MORE EFFECTIVE
How to connect your technique to your playing
Getting inspired by my technique, yes it is fun to be able to execute. I need more technique, yes of course, but not for the sake of the technique.
Do it for the sake of music!
I believe the goal with technique exercise is to practice great applicable material which is fitting directly into melodies and solos which you will be playing.
And not to practice material we will not use on a daily basis.

OVERTONES – DO THIS AND GET THE BEST SOUND

OVERTONES – DO THIS AND GET THE BEST SOUND
Practice overtones and get a much richer sound and better tone control
Overtones make your sound richer. You want to have a rich sound with a lot of overtones displayed present.
With a lot of overtones present in your sound your sound gets more projection, it becomes more powerful and you get a better control of your sound.
Overtones also have a direct influence on your ability to play falsetto register on the saxophone.
All this leads to better control of the horn. Great sound also influences the ease of your technique on the saxophone.
All saxophone players should practice overtones and get the advantages of this.
