Sax on the Web Portal - Dexter Gordon in Finland 1971

  • 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.

    Re: Ted Klum Acoustimer II - Issues with loudness, expression

    I have the same issue with a Morgan MP I've been using on alto. I love all the colors I get, but in terms of expression it feels limited. I've tried five or six different reeds.

    Maybe off the topic,

    just want to mention that I am happy with the sax(with nice custom works) got from silver-sax, and he is a nice person to do business with.
