  1. Re: High Schoolers: How do you find time to practice?

    Good catch. I meant the SAT... I got a 32 on the ACT (not quite as high as my SAT score, so I always submitted SAT). I think the ACT I took was out of 36 though.
  2. Re: High Schoolers: How do you find time to practice?

    I am a little confused about how it is difficult to find time to practice in high school. Perhaps I was a little unusual, but from 9th grade on, I practiced 5-8 hours a day.

    I had a full academic...

    I don't know what exactly constitutes a "great" recording, but Johnny Griffin burns through Autumn Leaves on Return of the Griffin. I would say it qualifies as at least a "very good" solo.

    In...

    Definitely -- Bob Berg's recording is my favorite.

    Chris Potter also did it on 'Concentric Circles.'

    These and Sinatra are the only recordings I have of the tune.

    I love the list of things you are doing "at the moment", saxpics.

    Although a value guide would be handy, I am quite certain that a coffee-table-type sax book would be more enduring. And let's be...

    This is a great thing you are doing, Phil.

    Good luck.

    Ah! You got my hopes up! I remember driving around and hearing this several times, so when you said it might be Wish, I was sure that was it. Upon listening, though, it's different.

  9. Please... for my sanity's sake... help!

    Off and on for three days I've had the same short quote stuck in my head, and I try as I might I can't remember/find which recording it's on. But I have sort of narrowed it down.

    I'm fairly sure...

    Sorry Sebbe, there isn't a quarter tone fingering between G and G#. The best you can really do is maybe put down low C and Bb, then voice/lip it down the rest of the way.

    The problem is that any...

    Hello Martin,

    If you are willing/able, I'd suggest that you try to transcribe these solos yourself. If not, and you still have had no luck, contact me; I haven't done these solos yet, but both of...

    Hmmm. Maybe I am the confused one.

    The range in which I can play notes comfortably and consistantly goes an octave and a perfect fourth above palm key F. I guess I've always assumed that low Bb...
