French saxophonist, Jean-Marie Londeix (b. 1932) graduated from the Paris Conservatoire with a First Prize and a Prize of Honour. As a fantastic all-around musician, he has a vast experience which makes his study books, including Gammes Et Modes, very well-informed.
His career has taken him all over the world and many composers have written works specially for him. As an accomplished teacher of other famous saxophonists, he has deduced where the gaps in studies for the instrument are, composing six significant books of the kind. The second volume of Gammes Et Modes addresses scales and modes over three octaves and broken chords over three and a half octaves. Moreover, fingerings are helpfully included. For all aspiring saxophonists, Gammes Et Modes, compiled by renowned, contemporary saxophonist Jean-Marie Londeix, is an essential guide and aid to progression of technique on the instrument.
