Q: Do I need two sax players to play the duets with the play-along CD?
A: No. Because of the extra play-along tracks included, you have the choice of playing
the 2nd sax part with Greg Fishman playing the 1st part, or you can choose to
play the first part yourself, and have Mark Colby playing the 2nd part.
If you have another player present to play the duets with you, you can choose another track that has just the rhythm section.
Q: Can I practice soloing with the play-along CD?
A: Yes. The play-along CDs include an extended version of each duet with the rhythm section playing extra choruses for soloing.
