    Wow. It seems like every day I learn something new. Mule is the last guy I would have suspected to be a bad player/teacher.

    Here's a brief sample of the "terrible musician"...



    Just to be clear, I respect Londeix enormously, but I (still) don't understand how he could have said these words about Mule, if indeed he did.
    Stay thirsty my friends.

    Haha. I very much doubt he used the jazz slang as in "Baaad" actually meaning the opposite .

    I am not a specialist on classical saxophone, but I really suspect a bad translation from Michael Segell. By the way the word " terrible " is what we call an " faux ami ". The translation is just the opposite as terrible in french can mean " great ".

    In a letter dated July 1991, Jean-Marie Londeix wrote to James C. Umble: "D?s 1942, Mule m'a r?ellement servi de mod?le. Plus de vingt apr?s, j'ai continu? ? soliciter son avis, recherchant sa totale et pleine satisfaction. M. Ferry l'estimait grandement lui aussi. Mon imagination a fait le reste. Mule a ?t? pour moi en quelque sorte une personne sacr?e. Une sorte de dieu du saxophone" .

    I try to translate for you guys : "By 1942, Mule became really my model. More than twenty after, I continued to ask his opinion. Looking for its total and complete satisfaction. M. Ferry had a great opinion about him too. My imagination did the rest. Mule for me was somehow a sacred person. Some kind of a saxophone's god. "

    Remember, academic infighting is so fierce because the stakes are so small.
