4 Jazz Duets for 2 Flutes

score and parts

Partitur und Stimmen

Enfin ( !), voici ma première collection de duos de jazz swingin' pour flûtistes classiques et jazz. Ces mélodies cool et ces rythmes de jazz groovy transformeront à coup sûr votre duo de flûtes en un véritable duo de jazz ! Quelques conseils pour obtenir ce véritable son de jazz à la flûte : essayez d'utiliser un peu moins de vibrato ; jouez avec une sensation de swing subtile (swinguez les croches) ; utilisez la langue legato (sauf indication contraire) comme articulation de jazz "par défaut".

Deux des quatre duos, "Daytime Blues" et "In the Shade", proposent une "section solo" où vous pouvez soit improviser sur une progression d'accords de blues de 12 mesures (les symboles des accords sont indiqués), soit jouer le solo écrit facultatif.

J'espère que vous aurez autant de plaisir que moi à jouer ces duos de jazz!

 Ali Ryerson



This set of four duets is designed for both classical and jazz players and provides an enjoyable introduction into the jazz idiom. Ryerson gives advice on how to create a jazz sound, including using legato tonguing as a default, reducing the amount of vibrato used and lightly swinging the quavers. The first two duets, Daytime Blues and In the Shade, provide opportunities for improvised solos over a 12-bar blues pattern, with chord symbols provided as well as a written-out version of the solo for those with less confidence to improvise. This is an excellent opportunity to develop an understanding of both the construction of the 12-bar blues pattern and to gain experience in improvising, all within the safe environment of a flute duet rehearsal! Both players have the opportunity to have a go at creating a solo, meaning that this is potentially an area an established duo can develop together. Each of the duets is relatively short and well suited for intermediate players. The score is well presented in a typical jazz-style type face, with both parts and the score provided. The pieces are fun and capture Ryerson’s characteristic energy. These are an excellent starting point for anyone interested in venturing into the jazz domain, as well as enjoyable, well-written pieces which provide scope for those with more jazz experience to explore style and interpretation in more depth. Ideal for students and amateurs alike, these are likely to become quite a big hit.
