  1. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Hello, friends. (I really shouldn't post another question until I finish answering the posts on my other threads, but, if you will forgive me, here it goes...) Before sitting down to learn some transcribed solos, I usually like to listen to the solo first, to see if the style even interests...
  2. Teaching
    Hello friends. Yes, I understand that the blues scale does not fit every song, but in the cases where it does, I cannot remember what the general rule of thumb was for determining which blues scale to use. I thought I had read in Aebersold's instruction books sometime ago, that the general...

    Hey everyone! Here's a video from a gig I did this past weekend. In this one we're playing Mulgrew Miller's "The Eleventh Hour" and I...took it pretty far out. Sometimes it just feels good to do that and just plain works! Let me know what you think, and I hope you enjoy it!

    Hey everyone! During a lesson the other day my student and I were just ripping through a few tunes and I decided to record us blowing over a pretty quick blues. Check it out and let me know what you think!

    This loosely a blues progression that has 2 keys layered on the 12 bars. The second section modulates down a half step. I playing my SBA tenor and my STM Florida Otto Link and a Roberto's Winds reed
  7. Practicing
    Hello dear more experienced player, I am looking for tips to practice blues scales. Do you have routines that utilize the blues scales but add some additional elements to break the looming monotony when going through the keys? If so, what are they? Thank you LouCo

    A little bit of blues with my baritone sax. Have a nice day everybody!
  9. High School and College
    Hello, If you're reading this, maybe you could help! I'm getting really bored with my playing, especially over a blues. I feel like I often play the same ideas over and over again, each chorus I take, and I was wondering if there was a better way of approaching a blues. I attached a small video...
  10. Tenor mpc
    Hi, I played a Dukoff till it was really old and I sold it. It was an amazing mpc. Later I played a metal Berg Larsen Duckbill but I had entonation issues with my Yanagisawa 991 and I sold it. Later I owned a Law Buzzer with I liked very much but I dropped it accidentally to the floor and it...

  12. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hi, I've been playing the sax for 7 months and recently learned and performed Blue Monk. My teacher wants me to learn another blues-like song and told me to choose one. Ideally, it would be -like blue monk- a 12 bar blues, well-known and played by many famous sax players. Do you have any...

  14. Playing Songs
    Thought this might be fun and interesting since we all have songs we can't stand and often they are ones that are called at a jam when you are on stage. Here's mine: Sweet Home Alabama because it seems that no matter what jam or gig I go to this song gets covered every time. I don't mind...

    I just picked up this tenor and I got to say it can play some blues. Not a Selmer, but a different animal altogether. It's an 875 in black lacquer (not an 875 EX ) the older model. Obviously hardly played before, it's like new. I had a couple of these in the past that I thought were real solid...

  18. Recordings, Movies
    What's up guys? I'm starting a podcast and to kick it off I interviewed John Petrucelli -- a great tenor player in the Pittsburgh area. He starts off talking about his background, and then we cover three recent recordings he did. http://jazzbrospodcast.libsyn.com/

    Nothing too fancy here. Just some down home, gutbucket, finger wigglin' tenor. I'm on my Mark Vi 105xxx, my Link 9* and a Roberto's Winds reed. He has a shop here in NYC that is the home of the "Mark VI Room."

    This is just some old time gutbucket blues I learned along the way. I'm playing my trusty and somewhat crusty Mark VI 105xxx along with my 9* Florida STM with a Roberto's Winds reed.
