    actually you’re getting a good handle on the flutter tongue way to go, many can’t ever really grasp it.
    interesting choice of songs in which to practice the flutter to!
    I just started working on Misty, but with a very different tempo and groove….if it works out it’ll be my next upload.

    i love music, music is my drug, a good backing track and i can get high on it.

    I need to learn to play those two tunes properly, when i get the chance, case of priorities.

    i also want to try out your besame & Ipanema at later date, as i’ve got different versions. Looking forward to your version of misty.

    the only reason i flutter tongued misty, is from my memory of clint eastwoods play misty for me film.

    i would love to hear your version of misty , sick song, one os the best ballads, also do in a sentimental mood, another sweet slow tune, i love ballads, to me they are the epitomy of saxophone

    you might not like my version so much cause I’m not doing it as a ballad

    I’d love to hear a reggae version of misty.

    a reggae version would be interesting…I’m taking a similar approach to how King Curtis did it back in the 60’s.
    you can probably find the studio version on youtube….I would categorize it as R&B and Swing.
    don’t get me wrong, I love listening to guys like Stan Getz and Dexter Gordon play it that way but there’s a really cool driving force that works really well with this tune when done like the version I was talking about.

    thanks BC, I have seen that one before, maybe someone else shared or I just stumbled upon him on youtube…the guy has a sweet sound. and so cool for a young guy to be listening to and inspired by the old classic players.
