  3. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    Think the SENZO Saxophone is a *classical* horn only? THINK AGAIN. The new Buffet SENZO Saxophone continues to impress both hard hitting jazz players and serious classical saxophonists alike! Big thanks to Bob Reynolds as he presents the new BUFFET SENZO alto saxophone. Buffet Crampon has...
  4. Playing Songs
    Well, not entirely a cappella...there's a drum loop. But no harmonic instruments. Video (& gear list): Shedding this way provides a bit more rhythmic inspiration than a metronome on 2 & 4, but still forces you to get inside the tune's guts, keep the time...

    Until yesterday, Mulgrew Miller was a living legend in the jazz community. Sadly, due to a stroke, he now is a legend. One of my favorite recordings is Joe Lovano’s Tenor Legacy, featuring Joshua Redman. I think that was the first place I heard Mulgrew’s playing. I was a junior in high school...

    This arrived in the mail yesterday. Had to try it out on the gig... Answer to the question you are going to ask: Yes, I prefer no high F#. My Mark VI doesn't have one, I never have--or would--use it, so it's just extra metal on...

    [this is an excerpt from a recent blog post] Playing All the Time I just had a great phone conversation with my old high school friend and saxophone mentor.

    OK, clearly the title of this post was a ploy to grab your attention. P. Mauriat System 76: the horn I'm playing in this video John Mayer: both David Ryan Harris and myself play in his band Radiohead: they wrote the song we're performing in this video
  12. High School and College
    I bet you've faced at least one tough decision concerning your future. One of the toughest can be deciding where to go to college. I'm often asked if Berklee is worth the price tag. One of our members is facing decision time and writes… “I was accepted to Berklee last year and deferred. In...
