• 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 know it's been years since this thread has been active, but in case somebody like me ends up on here looking for some guys to listen to, here's my two cents.

    Brian Hogans - Plays with Sean Jones...

    Re: Scales with Fingering Chart

    You might dig this scale approach but this is a pretty dry way to approach learning the sax. I would suggest your main focus be on learning songs and melodies. Maybe use the other 10% of your time...
