A Couple of Live Gig Sax Clips from the Past………

I was going through my computer this morning deleting random junk files and miscellaneous recordings from the past when I came across some clips from a gig some 10+ years ago.   It’s a rough “live” gig recording and not a polished studio recording so try not to be too critical of it.   I Read More…

Let’s Get It On Lamberson 7DD Tenor Mouthpiece

Here’s a video clip that has been on my site since it started years ago.  I made this video back in 2006 when I was part of a great Boston function band “Soho”.  This is a cover of “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye.  I take a small solo towards the end of the Read More…

“Live” Approach Note Patterns on R&B

Back about 10 years ago, I decided to work on my approach note patterns.  I had been taught a few of these patterns in lessons with Jerry Bergonzi and wanted to really get them down.  As I started to really work on the approaches in every key I found myself finding others to add to Read More…

“Live” Guardala Laser Trimmed Michael Brecker II Saxophone Mouthpiece

Here’s another live clip I dug out of my computer. This is a more  mellow clip of a solo on the tune “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones.  To be honest, I’m one for staying in the mood of the tune when I solo.  I can’t stand it when I hear a slow ballad Read More…

“Live” Clip of a Yamaha WX-5 Harmonica Solo

I didn’t think I would ever do this but…………about once a month I get an email from someone asking if I can put up some sound clips and lessons on the Yamaha WX-5 wind controller.  A Yamaha WX-5 is what is known as a wind controller.  You blow air into and finger it just like Read More…

Here’s another live clip I dug out of my computer.  I have hundreds of these and every once in awhile I’ll go through and see what I can find.  This is a clip of my saxophone solo on “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye at some event in Boston.  As with most of these clips Read More…

“Live” solo on “Jump Jive and Wail”

This is a live clip from a gig I did 5-6 years ago.  It’s on the tune “Jump Jive and Wail”.  I have no idea what mouthpiece I’m using on this. This is a bit of a different style of music than I usually post clips of so I thought some of you might like Read More…

This is a live clip from a gig I did 5-6 years ago. I play a tenor saxophone solo using the Fred Lamberson DD7 tenor mouthpiece I had back then.  The mouthpiece is made of white acetal with a high long baffle in it that drops down into the chamber after about a half inch Read More…

“Live” Lamberson 7DD Tenor Mouthpiece

Here’s a “live” clip of my white acetal Lamberson 7DD tenor mouthpiece. This is the same piece that I play on the “Let’s Get it On” video on my website. I’ve always said that Fred Lamberson makes amazing mouthpieces. This 7DD mouthpiece is no exception. It’s on the brighter side of the spectrum but still Read More…

“Live” Jon Van Wie Otto Link 8

My Jon Van Wie refaced Super Tone Master Link is the Mouthpiece that I have played on the most over the last 10 years. Jon Van Wie was an incredible mouthpiece refacer (sad to say that he died a number of years ago).  I had the good fortune to have him work on a few Read More…
