    Some Grassi serial numbers

    Thread Starter: milandro

    As I promised long ago, I was going to get some information on the Grassi serial numbers. They are from a reliable source. Unfortunately the information is rather sketchy for both the beginning and the end of the company's production lifespan so I will quote here only the SN upon which there is...

    Alan Greenspan was a saxophone player and played in Jack Teagarden's orchestra ......too bad that next to him a good friend of his, Stan Getz who, despite Alan's virtues and efforts, outplayed Greenspan, so eventually he decided to take to business rather than music.

    The world lost a saxophone player and gained a guy who..........did what he did (we can't talk politics here !)

    Anway, the bank crisis was Stan Gets's fault! Had he not being in the same orchestra maybe Greenspan would have played the saxophone rather than the financial markets.

      My Grandfather also took up accounting after missing his big chance, he played for the Carlos Molinas Orchestra, at the Latin Quarter which had four spots, New york, Miami, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. They would tour between all four, and while they were in LA, they were asked to be the backing band for Carmen Miranda's films. Unfortunately a war had just started and my grandfather was drafted, losing his spot. Upon returning to Milwaukee, he found he was ineligible for service and promptly became an accountant, cutting a few 78's in Chicago and teaching privately on the side. Moral of the story, Politica and Sax don't mix for the most part.

      Slightly off track, but Josh Redman was accepted to Yale law before deciding to focus on music. His bio on Wikipedia makes for interesting reading.

    Re: FS- Charles Bay Artist Model bass clarinet mouthpiece M-O-M facing

    I meant to thank Benny for a great transaction! This piece plays just as he claimed, it has a bit more projection and is maybe a touch brighter than my regular Bay M-O-M piece. Perfect for getting...

    Re: Beginners/Intermediates post your recordings here - 2017

    Thanks for the feedback, it's helpful. I would definitely like to tackle one of the B&I TOTM tunes time permitting, but lately it hasn't permitted much.

    Re: Tenor Mouthpiece Website

    Funny that you comment on the qualities of Rigotti 3L vs 3M. I was starting to wear out my 3L reeds, and switched to 3M just over the weekend, in the hope that I wouldn't blow them out as fast.

    Re: Question about reeds?

    The clamp point on the reed is one of the well-known 'sweet spots' on a sax where small influences can, cumulatively, make big changes. This is why there are so many ligature designs and why so many...
