SPEAK NOW music for tenor saxophone
Matt London - Tenor Saxophone
David Howard - Piano
with special guest Geoff Eales [piano]
SPEAK NOW is my debut classical tenor saxophone album! Presenting a selection of original tenor saxophone works from across the UK.
These pieces demonstrate the breadth of talented composers writing for the instrument today, drawing from an exciting variety of influences - jazz and popular idioms to contemporary classical and beyond.
Music by: Matt London, Geoff Eales, Andy Scott, Adam Caird, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Graham Fitkin, Graham Coatman and Richard Rodney Bennett.
Beautiful physical copies are available from this site, with digital copies from all good download services visit my store for more details.
Putting this whole project together as an independent artist has been a lot of fun, frustrating at times, with a lot of organisation! I've taken away pieces from the original intened line up, and added. And in that sense it has been a really useful experience in programming.
I hope the album provides interest and pleasure not only to the listener who, like me, has a great affection for the instrument, but also introduces newer listeners to compelling repertoire being written today.
Playing on my lovely old 1933 Conn has been a blast and quite an experience. Keeping it under control and consistant has been a challenge but a highly enjoyable one. I wouldn't change it for the world. I just love that rich and open Conn sound!
