    quick rendition (clams and all) of Harlem Nocturne with my new sax, a Drake Contemporary mouthpiece (9*) and a Select Jazz 3S reed. The trying to work some altissimo in my solos, LOL… lots more practice needed.

    Thanks Pete, I’m not happy at all with the solo section. I’m going through Johnny’s dominant 7th soloing exercises and I see where I need much more space in this solo and to come up with a melody to place around the chord changes. It’s a journey!

    Thanks Brother! I love the way Sam (the man) Taylor plays this song, it’s almost scary… ha ha. Johnny does a hell of a cover as well. I cut a few other tracks but still not happy with them, I think my neighbors are sick of hearing me play this tune so I’ll give it some time and come back to it in a couple days…. when everyone is at work!

    Great stuff Mike! Love your tone–very full, fat and smooth sounding. You have some of that ‘buzz’ in your sound too, very cool. Hats off to you 🙂
