Andy will be working through a selection of his compositions with everyone; ranging from charts that he performs with his all-star SaxAssault group, to a session using his Access All Areas book, to pieces that continue to be played and enjoyed by saxophonists worldwide. The emphasis is on ensemble and working together, with lots of playing and having a good time!
