    Nothing truly groundbreaking here. As my internal rhythm improves I'm starting to do just a little put of pushing the envelope with the fingers. I was making a conscious effort to include a bit of double time within phrases while still maintaining clear phrases somewhere in the ballpark of 4 bars. I was also trying to drift so that not every phrase was starting as part of the 4-bar constructs of the song structure.

    This is an unintentional mashup of Now's the Time and Blue Monk in F on tenor. I lost track of the choruses (Aebersold playalong) so I hopped in with the melody before the end of the track. In true "professional fashion", I played another improvised chorus and then closed out with BLue Monk @ the end.

    Now's the Time for Blue Monk.

    Ben playing Samantha by Sammy Nestico as part of the Goshen High School Advanced Crimson Jazz Band at the Purdue Jazz Festival competition on January 23, 2017.

    The embedded player doesn't seem to be working. Here's the link:

    I want to record my playing, but I always think it isn't good enough. However a vlog on Bob Reynolds' channel convinced me to record. "Perfectionism leads to procrastination, which leads to paralysis."

    Criticize my playing! I know there is a part in my piano playing where it sounds off, and that's because I had to edit it to not have this distorted bass sound. There's a spitty sound at the beginning as well.

    I also did a take on this tune (the current Song Of The Month on the UK sax forum of Pete Thomas):

    Thanks Peter, In fact I've given a little more reverd to my recordings lately. Sounds better to my ears, but maybe I'm wrong

    This is a quick and dirty recording of the melody of Round Midnight on my phone. This is the new to me Phil-Tone Mosaic in standard 7* tip opening on a Vandoren Java Green 3. This was my 4th practice session using it.

    The Mosaic is a helping get my tone closer to the tone I'm hearing in my head. That makes it a really good mouthpiece for me.

    kerry - That was a wonderful take on He Is Here, very well played. The combination of the Dukoff Crystallite/Legere reed gives you one of the buzziest sounds I've heard on alto -but it works. Gospel cd soon?
    Thanks for the nice comment! Here is another song -Say The Name with a Vintage Beechler Bellite (has Koz baffle though). Vandoren Java green reeds. A little less buzz

    Practicing, practicing... Improvisation remains very poor

    Francisco,

    What are you doing to work on your improvising skills?

    nothing just pick and play, I know it's not enough. I think I always end up on a pentatonic scale, up and down, give some of the rhythm of the melody, which ends up remembering the melody, but I also think that sound always the same

    Never played this very nice ballad before, but knew it from the records (the fantastic Sonny Stitt version on bariton).

    - 'P.S. I Love You' (STM NY 9* - La Voz medium):
    http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13555829

    Played on a modern Otto Link STM NY 9*, which was refaced from a 7 (before I bought it). Didn't play that piece a lot, but I actually didn't dislike the sound at all. It's a bit darker then the 1950's Florida Link I normally play.

    Here is another tune I recorded recently. We play it with the Big Band as feature for our mail singer, but in a different key and without solo's. Only had time for a quick take and tried to keep up with the written theme, but my reading is not so good, so I ended up soon noodling through the song by ear. Played on a modern Otto Link STM NY 9* (refaced from 7) and a (bit too soft) La Voz medium reed.

    - 'Me And Mrs Jones' (STM NY 9* - La Voz medium):

    I recently did this rather laid back take of "Solar", which is very different from my normal up-tempo approach - all comments welcome.
