Blue Bossa triad pair

I am aware of most of these concepts and how they work but seeing them written down with new(to me) inversions using the not usual triad pairs is eye opening and inspiring.

Fantastic

Since I bought the Blue Bossa Triad Pairs I can't get my hands off the sax! Only writing this review is a good reason to do so... The triads are making their way into my dreams. I can play them for hours, and they ignite the creativity in a way nothing has done so ib the last years... This is dynamite!!! Thank you Nick so much, and what a timing...
