since I left my Sax alone for decades, I found it again and would like to play and practice a bit. Once, when I attended the music class, my teacher advised me to use Band in the Box, so that I could set some Harmonies and Rhythm, for training purposes.

Unfortunately I moved away from Windows® to ubuntu and now I would like to ask if anybody knows something like Band in the Box for linux/unix systems.

If you know Band in the Box, you could always run it in a VM or under WINE. – Dr Mayhem Apr 4 '14 at 10:19
Although this is on-topic, as it is directly related to playing your instrument, you might find it useful to seek advice at some of the other SE sites, for example: – Bob Broadley Apr 4 '14 at 11:01
Product search is off-topic because of the tendency to get link-only answers with no useful explanation, as you can see below, in addition to subjectivity and other concerns. Please do try the Software Recommendations site, they fill that niche well. – Matthew Read Feb 13 at 1:52

I've tried these programs. All I'll say is - if you want what Band-in-a-box does, swallow your pride and get a computer that runs Band-in-a-box. This is like saying "I want to play the Grieg piano concerto, but I've moved on to marimba." Marimba's a great instrument, but it can only do what it CAN do. – Laurence Payne Feb 25 at 14:56
