• 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: Selmer Series II alto FS

    Very sad to hear someone getting ripped off and not getting their sax case delivered after paying in good faith, sounds like a scumbag trick..

    Re: Body octave venting

    I too have experienced this on other tenors, but never on my Super 20. The worst was a Selmer S80 Series II.
