Hello, I currently stuck between a rock and a hard place. Last night at rehearsal, the principal bass told the section to swing the eighth notes in this new age saxophone concerto. the problem is, i am convinced that we are supposed to play the eighths straight because we have swung eighths only when the notation implies swung eighths. when we swing them, we end up not syncing with other sections that have similar rhythms, particularly during syncopations. My problem is, should I tell him my opinion and show musical examples (which may rub him the wrong way as he is a very very moody guy) which would fit the music we are playing? or just let it go an as he is the principal bass?
