I’ve been working a lot lately trying to pull my sax chops back together and it’s starting to come back to me now. One of the main things I’ve been working on is Michael Brecker’s tune Itsbynne Reel. This has always been one of my favorite Brecker tunes. His writing blows my mind and his level of playing is completely unattainable by mere mortals.

I recorded myself playing along with the first minute and a half or so of this tune. It’s a long way from perfect but I thought I’d let everybody here what I’ve accomplished so far. Here is the sheet music if you’d like to follow along at home.
