• 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.

    I don't think rubbing alcohol is very good for hard rubber. I seem to remember reading somewhere that it can break the material apart, and cause it to be brittle (and thus more prone to cracking).

    Re: Wtb: Beechler S7 hard rubber soprano sax mouthpiece

    Those were the classic "Riffault" blanks. They were made in France for a ton of companies and are actually very common.

    In fact, it looks like SopranoPlanet.com (Joe) is selling them advertised...
