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: Ease of removing Emilio Lyons modifications on a horn?

    Good that it has not attacked lacquer for you.
    It seems to be mainly a solvent similar to lighter fluid, plus up to 6.5% of a combo of natural citrus oil, and synthetic citrus oil (limonene)

    @ Randroid, you may consider joining one of the online clarinet lessons possibilities. I love the Monthly Live Sessions of Michelle Anderson in which you can actively participate and get personal...

    Up Date: I went ahead and replaced the case, which had a musky smell to it. I'm still asking for only 900.00 + Actual Shipping.

    Re: FS/FT: Tenor SaxScape XtraDark .104, Alto SaxQuest Lead 6, and a Soprano Link

    I'm a complete idiot and got these measurements wrong.
    Slant is at a .99
    XtraDark is at .104
    Hudson is at .110

    Sorry about that.

    Cool rhythmic approach to the solo with a nice build up too. Nice one Spencer. :)
