Wild explores a tonal plateau based primarily around E with other sections centered on A, Bb, and C.  Jazz influences are quite evident in the phrase structure and the harmonic implications.

The sections with repeated Es (eg bar 13) should have a raw primal quality, while the rapid passages have a skittering quasi-improvisational character.

Suggested multiphonic fingerings are notated in the score.  If they do not reproduce well on your instrument, modifications are acceptable, but must be in keeping with the character of the piece.

I would like to acknowledge James Nightingale for the recommended fingerings and thoughtful and practical suggestions.

This body of work comprises six pieces based on styles of saxophone playing associated with several of the legendary players of past and present years. To perform these pieces you will be called upon to use a variety of techniques from the use of vibrato and playing in the altissimo register to the use of multiphonic fingerings to name but just a few. With all the pieces keep the style foremost in your thinking when performing. Listen to lots of examples and with some assistance from your teacher and your good taste have some fun with these pieces.
