    Re: Looking for a good Soprano Sound.

    Steve Lacey, rightly mentioned several times already. I like him particularly on `The Straight Horn of Steve Lacey', one of his earlier recordings, where he is playing more straight ahead, before he...

    Indeed. A guess is a guess. Your Dutch madman is a lovely cautionary tale for all armchair etymologists :)

    Re: Mysterious Italian word

    How about the Austrians or Tyroleans? If a German word was going to get into Italian, the most likely route in pre-mass-communication days would have been Austria/Tyrol.

    Any Austrians out there...

    Re: Mysterious Italian word

    Milandro,

    My guess (I'm a linguist) is that it is a loanword from the German: Kiefer, a jawbone. Just look at the shape.

  9. Re: Bird: "I can play all I know in 8 bars"...

    i.e. a one half-step alteration to one note of a (mode of a) major scale. Nice and easy.

    But then a harmonic minor is also a one half-step alteration to one note of a (mode of a) major scale. Just...
  10. Re: Bird: "I can play all I know in 8 bars"...

    I'm shedding the Omnibook at the moment. One thing I have noticed, for what it's worth, is that Bird plays a lot within Harmonic Minor tonalities. The famous 16th-note lick alluded to several times...

    Re: Good book for a clarinetist?!

    You really really really should get a teacher to get your alto embouchure sorted out. Infuriatingly, everything embouchure that's been drilled into you as a clarinetist is wrong for the sax, and you...

    Re: changing from tenor to soprano sax

    Tenor, soprano and alto are not just different saxes, they are different instruments. Also, each has its own natural repertoire. Moving to a sop form a tenor is *not* moving to a pocket-sized tenor...

    Re: 82Z Alto and Intonation

    Other posters in the Yamaha subforum have mentioned serious problems with C# tuning in early 82Z models. The consensus seems to be that Yamaha fixed the problem and recent 82Zs play fine. For what...

    Re: Custom 82Z Club??

    Just joined the club: YAS 82Z UL WOF#. Aizen NY 7, Vandoren Klassik lig (string!) and blue box 2.5. I thought I was a tenor player (ref. 54), but this horn is just so much fun to play!

  16. Re: How to hold a Tenor?/My neck gets sore when standing!

    Stand up striaght, shoulders back, sax in front of you! If you're stooping, chances are you're basically dangling the sax from your neck. The neck-strap's main job is to stop the sax falling all over...

    I suppose it could, but... here's Bud's lick:

    descending eighth notes C# Bb A G (over A7b9), F D (over Dmi6).

    The most straightforward analysis (and the one Levine gives) is that this is a...
