This weekend, I was going through my vast computer files and trying to clean out the gigabytes of junk I had on my computer when I discovered this old clip.
This is from a recording session I did way back in the early 90’s. I think I was about 25 at the time and in my Michael Brecker/Bob Berg phase of tenor saxophone development. I haven’t listened to this clip in years but I thought it would be fun to post it on here. The sax has way too much reverb on it in my opinion but for whatever reason back then I thought it was cool. I’m not a fan of it now that is for sure.
The musicians were:
Neil Itzler- Guitar
As I listen back to the recording there are things I don’t like about my playing but I think the energy level is pretty good…………..

*I was playing on a H. Couf Superba I tenor saxophone and a Sugal JB .105 high baffle tenor mouthpiece at the time. Shortly afterward, that Sugal mouthpiece bit the dust when I dropped it on the cement floor of my garage while trying to put a reed on it unfortunately…………
