The legendary saxophonist Michael Brecker kept extensive notes on things to practice over the whole span of his career. This unique and beautifully produced book presents the essence of these notebooks - jam-packed with useful, and often brilliant, musical ideas and over 700 exercises.

The Practice Notebooks of Michael Brecker can be used with any treble clef instrument (since he often wrote “Play in all keys!”) and contain explanations of how he actually worked on these ideas from Joey Calderazzo, John Patitucci, Richie Beirach, Steve Khan and Dave Liebman. An appendix of his saxophone-specific exercises on fingerings, multiphonics, etc. is also featured.
