OBJECTIVE
This project is designed to meet the demands of intermediate to advanced jazz saxophonists as they establish the
dexterity of their sight-reading skill in all key signatures. Five ii-V-I jazz lines with the utilization of tenor
saxophonist John Coltranes multi-tonic system are transposed chromatically, covering the full register of a
saxophone to extend the technical flexibility. The author of this project avoids lengthy theoretical annotation,
aiming to establish the practical aspect as a sight-reading exercise. However, it is advised that the saxophonists
review the analytical structure and the motivic construction of each Coltrane ii-V-I line parallel to the sight-reading
practice in order to enhance the learning activity. Although the project is designed specifically for jazz
saxophonists, it can be used by other jazz instrumentalists who wish to develop their sight-reading skill.
