I have a "tryout" for my high school band class that I am going into in June, and I would like to know if any of you have a recommendation on a jazz tune for me to play. Keep in mind that this "tryout" is only for the band director to see where I am at on the alto saxophone.
So I feel very creative in the key of C minor. For something like an impromptu or a symphony, that is great. But at the same time C minor feels intimidating. C minor, out of all the keys is where my music tends to go all Beethoven. In other words, I tend to have sudden dynamic changes, sudden tempo changes, every aspect of Beethoven's style in my C minor pieces. And this makes me nervous that if I finish a piece in C minor, there is going to be someone comparing me to Beethoven in a not so great way. At the same time though, I also get the feeling that I just don't know when to stop.
No matter how many cadences I have or how many measures I have written, I seriously don't know where to stop in a C minor piece. There are so many things I can do in C minor that I typically don't do in any other key. For example having bVII going to I, in the case of C minor that would be Bb going to Cm. I also feel like the Bb note is critical for the minor feeling of C minor. Without it, it feels too much like C major for me to think of it as really being C minor and I instead think of it as a transition to C major.
So how can I overcome this nervousness related to Beethoven's style showing up in my C minor pieces and how can I actually finish a piece when it feels like so much more could be done in the key of C minor?
So i finally finished transcribing this one :3. I recomposed some parts to make it sound better.
