Quartet Rehearsal Techniques

I have been looking for a written rehearsal technique or methodology for Sax Quartets. I have not found such a tool. Any ideas? Or, if this does not exist, maybe this is a great project to take on. Thanks in advance Mark

Closest I can think of might be Rascher's [I]Do You Listen[/I]?

Instead of looking for a specific "Saxophone Quartet" method, I would look to the String Quartet. I have drawn a lot of inspiration from David Blums book about the[URL="http://www.amazon.com/Art-Quartet-Playing-Guarneri-Paperbacks/dp/0801494567/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1233249264&sr=1-4"] Guarneri String Quartet,[I]"[/I]The Art of Quartet Playing". [/URL] J.M. Londeix also had a Saxophone Ensemble book of chords/scales to tune to and work on balance, "Exercices Pratiques pour ensemble de Saxophones".

Thanks to both of you. I ordered the GSQ book. The Rascher book is out of print. If anyone knows a resource, let me know. Thanks again Mark
