  1. Re: As a LeftHanded person, I've always been a little curious about right-handed players.

    There's very little point in having a left-handed sax.
    You need to use both your hands with equal dexterity, the fingers and the palm of the left hand to operate the top keys and the fingers and...
  2. Re: Stupid but I have to ask Can you play and not read music

    Pros look away now.

    I think it depends how far you want to go with your playing. I started playing sax quite late in life, the problem is that you can if you're musical, get on a lot quicker...

    Re: Julie London and Barney Kessel

    I have that album and his style is so instantly recognisable.

    He also played on the intro to the Beach Boys; "Wouldn't it be Nice?"

    Jazz musicians have a long history of playing sometimes,...

    Re: Favorite Band Movies ???

    There's some debate over these particular "musicians"
    Rita Rio did have an "all girl band" but just how many seen in this particular clip were real musicians and which were just "window dressing"...

    Re: Favorite Band Movies ???

    How about; "The Rita Rio All Girl Band" with Alan Ladd on vocals?

    Re: I can play so much faster!!!

    You could play even faster if you "don't move 'em at all" like Charlie Parker or it would seem from this clip.
    However watch Coleman Hawkins fingers, sometimes they almost "leave his hand" while...

    Re: Saxophone & Golfing similarities

    OK How about the similitaries between "back handed compliments" for sax playing and golfing performances?

    Here's one I use on occasions.

    If a golfing partner after a poor shot, says "That's the...
  10. Re: Wanting to start playing sax - buying my first instrument

    Of course those who advocate not renting a horn are missing the point that the renter may decide after a couple of weeks that the saxophone "isn't for them," then the renting option would have been...

    Re: The Girl From Ipanema, elevator music?

    The only thing "elevator" about it is the voice of Astrud Gilberto.

    I like to play along to backing tracks of standards I play and record on my leccy piano. I sometimes do two versions, the second...
  12. Re: Wanting to start playing sax - buying my first instrument

    I'd endorse the idea of renting before purchase.
    There are some suppliers in the UK who will provide you with a brand new instrument and if after a few months you like it, they'll sell it to you...

    Re: Age doesn't matter...does it?

    Sorry, but I wasn't impressed.

    A tenor sax has a normal range of more than two octaves and I think it would be far better for young players to first concentrate on producing an even and...
  14. Re: Who would like to hear some beatles tunes on Bari Sax?

    Never much liked the Beatles.

    Now this composer's work is definitely worth hearing played on a saxophone. I particularly like Nino's version of, "A House is Not a Home."

    Re: Lebayle Ligature

    Ah!

    I've just had an e-mail from Fred Lebayle!

    He apologised and said the reason why he hadn't answered my e-mails was because they were going into his "spam box!"

    He's offered to send one...

    Re: How do you assemble your horn?

    1, Horn on stand.
    2, Neck on horn.
    3, Reed on mouthpiece.
    4, Mouthpiece on neck.

    In all four actions I can use both hands, so never a problem.
    With the horn on its stand, there's less chance...

  19. Re: Link STM narrower than width of reed?

    The failure of the "pop test" isn't always of any particular significance. It's possible for a perfectly good mouthpiece to function despite this.....

    Or so I've read this several times on here.

    Lebayle Ligature

    I've recently bought off e-bay an "as new" metal Lebayle tenor jazz mouthpiece. The stock ligature didn't impress me, neither did it the vendor, I'd guess, as it looks as if it were never used.
    I'm...
