Hi all, I have just started playing with a saxophone ensemble and my timing has gone completely to pieces and indeed our big band leader has commented stating that I am not coming in on time after intro bars. So I ask myself is this due to the ensemble not having a rhythm section as such or indeed a conductor. As the newest recruit to the ensemble I am playing 4th alto which really is the bass line as we don`t have a Bari. Any hints/tips gladly received. Regds. my search for knowledge has not been dented by a recent trip on a bendy-bus. N.
