  • Bro C, my apologies….
    I thought it was you had the backing tracks to ” sentimental mood “….. Its the good Sxpoet !!☺☺
    Didn’t mean to cast any doubt on your ability. Man, with that set up I imagine your doing fine…
    Sorry man….jak😕😕

  • So I guess the Leo P, s of the world, are making the grade, getting the airtime, making the money.
    Sure, he’s a good bari player, but the gimmicks….
    Pink hair, dancing about ??
    Sam Butera and Louis Prima did that ” comedy ” routine stuff back in the fifties and sixties.
    Thing was, they were amazing players. If that’s the way its going….MAN…[Read more]

  • I’m trying to think of an original horn player that is current…I can’t !!
    ” Fast fingers ” have never impressed me too much.
    Sure when I was younger it was compulsory to be into Mike Brecker….he was an incredible player.
    Chris Potter…I’ve heard about ten minutes….
    Give me a good tone every time and the ability to convey that emotion….…[Read more]

  • Nail it to a wall….LOL !!
    Yeah its tough Sxpoet. ” Reverbnation ” is set up as a p!atform for exposure. Free studio time, possible airplay on mainstream and college radio. A ton of stuff. But they insist on ” original material ” or no go….
    The free altissimo sounds great. Have you seen ” Lost Highway ” by David Lynch ?? The first track is “…[Read more]

  • Bro C….last , but most certainly not least. I saw in a mail, you had the bts for ” sentimental mood “….nice one !!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend folks….
    May as well check ” preloved ” on the off c…[Read more]

  • Love the new avatar Sxpoet. As for some downloads, nothing would give me greater pleasure, but I’m not hooked up with the tech. If I was I’d be clueless anyhow.
    So happy to get the 10M back yesterday, but I had been so down with things I took off half a day to think of the future. Some contingency plans if you like.
    The possible job I mentioned a…[Read more]

  • Just for the record , how many times have I had to tell people saxophones are WOODWIND…. NOT BRASS !!
    ( Reed – wood …Wind ?…..possibly the lamb vindaloo I just had…😉

  • Yup….jak the Conn man ….☺☺ ( in the nicest of ways !! ). The idiot with the alto, left the wrong number on the advert. Left a message to phone me, but I’m not holding out much hope.
    Would you buy a horn off of a guy who can’t remember his own number…. DUH !!
    It was only a Texas made 20M, but it would have been a great starter horn for som…[Read more]

  • It goes without saying, IF I buy or sell anything on Johnny’s site, I will be kicking back a % into the funds . Its only fair. For now….a day at a time.
    Its been a good day, in fact a GREAT DAY !!☺☺

  • Hi folks, hope everybody is good….
    First things first…Mums back home and although still very weak she’s doing just fine.
    Thankyou all for your thought and best wishes, it means a lot …☺
    So, I picked up my 10M this morning. It wasn’t the cheapest of repairs but Richard has done a great job. The underslung octave mechanism was totally out of w…[Read more]

    I hadn’t noticed before but the post…[Read more]

  • Dear diary…☺☺☺LOL !!
    My ” time off “…..MAN !!
    Who’s idea was this altissimo nonsense anyhow !!😉
    Seriously , a whole mixture of finding this chromatic altissimo octave challenging to say the least. At the same time, on the old horn I can get the full range. One of those days when at face value, you think you’ve had a bad day. On refle…[Read more]

  • Bass clarinet sounds nice Jeff….
