    The ergos are actually very doable -- I'm mean, how could I say they ain't, since I've just heard Charles Lloyd do whatever the hell he wanted with impunity, and can watch Dexter et al on YouTube being as nimble as can be!

    The only issues I have are with the balance of the horn, and with the G# trill key, which kind of flops around a bit while I'm playing... But: I'm dealing!
    Kelly, I completely hear ya in regards to that G# "gizmo" key. Mine still has it as well, but I've seen and played other 10M's that they've been removed from. Mine doesn't rattle around noticeably, but every once in a while my middle RH finger brushes against it when I'm playing and that does feel kinda odd.
    Balance of the horn is definitely different as well. Plus the angle of the neck as I bring it into my mouth is quite different than my Super. I have to pull up on my strap just a tad to make up for the angle difference, which at first feels odd, but 5 minutes later I don't notice it at all. They're definitely great horns and I'd love to hear you on the thing! Speaking of which, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits for not giving me a call when you were in Wausau over Christmas!!

    Best.....

    Lloyd is scheduled to play at a festival down this way next summer — really looking forward to it. When I was a kid in the 50's I listened to a lot of Brubeck and Chico Hamilton. I really preferred that sound to the funky hard bop stuff my friend was always trying to get me to listen to. He called me up one day, "Hey, I've got bad news — Chico's deserted you." Evidently he'd recorded a new band with a new sound. The album was Drumfusion with Gabor Szabo on guitar and Charles Lloyd covering the woodwind slot. It was a revelation. My taste in jazz significantly changed and I made the decision to start playing tenor sax.

    From the program notes to the JALC concert:

    Lloyd was ten when he first heard Lester*Young’s recording of “I’m Confessin’,” which*established the template that fuels his ongoing*predisposition to convey tender sentiments*through his instrumental voice. “That’s partly*why I still play these beautiful saxophones*from the 1920s and the 1930s,” he told the*Santa Barbara reporter. “They have the pre-war feeling; the metal is different. Of course a*younger player today might not appreciate*these older instruments because they don’t*have the flash, the speed of the best new*horns. It’s like there are these Ferraris out*there, but I’ve sacrificed that glitziness for the*burnished feel of an old Packard.”*

    Classic! There's got to be a great composition idea in there someplace!

    Has anyone listed to his double CD "Lift every voice" (2001, I think)? It's sublime! What I love in Charles' music is what I call its "spiritual density". It's hard to explain, but the music goes well beyond the instrument and the technique, it speaks at a much deeper level.

    Thanks, August sounds really good right about now. Getting Stonington'ed does not sound bad either.

    For folks who never heard Dinwiddie- what a killer tenor player, via Chicago and an early member of the AACM there.
    I saw this concert package in Boston in '68 or '69. I was a big fan back then. I saw the band in Hollywood, Fla around the same time. Maracas and interesting clothing from Charles, Keith, Jack, and Ron McClure.

    That group also used to do the instrument switch thing. I think Keith Jarrett would switch to sax and Jack Dejohnette to piano.

    I saw Keith play soprano when he had the group with Dewey. He had a super snakey tone that was actually really great.
