Blues Changes in F – Piano and Alto (<<link)
For the final jazz composition, I did several minor changes to the overall melody, and I changed the speed from 120 bpm to 105 bpm, because with the number of notes I had, it sounded too fast. I had a lot of rests in the song the first time, and it sounded too jumpy, like in bar 4, therefore I added a note, or extended an eighth note to smoothen the melody. I also made some changes to the dynamics, especially in the piano melody, for example, in bar 20 where the dynamic ff was used, the piano overpowered the sax melody a bit, therefore I changed the piano dynamic to mf with a resulting crescendo.
Enjoy as always!
