Very cool exercise :) Right now it is my go-to practice after scales warm-ups and as an ending or pause in every practice session, just to calm myself a little and focus on notes of each chord and pentatonic. I am not a pro musician, but I think it is a great blueprint to develop nice, full sound on saxophone and to not get tired too quickly.
Thank you. I am enjoying the Coltrane pentatonic ideas...it reminds me of the Melodic Minor approach that I like to use, yet, it has a special Spirit that connects to the tradition of and Spirit Coltrane peace...For anyone who is used to practicing the same thing, the PDF shares lots of cool new horizons to draw ideas from...Thanks for sharing. Peace through music...
