My main instrument is tenor saxophone,also I have made a lot of arrangment for Jazz big band. This album is the first CD of my big band. My band 'Eiichiro Arasaki big band' has two world.One is combo style jazz,the other is traditional big band style jazz. Big band sound and Combo style sound melt. Also you can hear a lot of improvisation in diffalent style,be-bop,modal and free etc. Please sometimes stop by my webpage -jazz. Cdx.jp-.There are a lot of info about saxophone.
