• Dexter Gordon in Finland 1971

    As a young guy I was lucky to meet and photograph Dexter Gordon when he was playing a gig in Finland, Vaasa Youth Festival on 19 June 1971. Dexter is still one of my favorite sax players.

    More jazzy pictures from the festival in my blog: http://wp.me/p1jVlh-f2.

    Re: FS: Saxscape SL (Slant) Prototype .102

    So this is still floating around at home and I could really use the extra dollars from selling it..

    How about $80 and I'll cover shipping within Australia!!

    Soak it in tea, that'll darken up the color... :-)

    Re: Classical vs Jazz

    I disagree with you vehemently on this. A good embrouchure will produce enough flexibility to play both styles, but phrasing and throat positions are what makes the sound different. Joe Allard...

    It's always good when a saxophonist gets some pop culture recognition. But I wish he had "called out" another horn player instead of those California celebs.
