Project 7 – Nine note scales

I have never heard of a ‘9-note scale’ before, and wasn’t able to find many references to them on the internet either.  The first one in the course notes contains both the ascending and descending notes of the melodic minor scale (if you take the variety with the flattened third), so I chose to write a slightly brooding waltz melody for the saxophone.

The second variety of the scale has a flattened second and fifth which make it sound rather eerie.
