    Thought this might amuse some of you, at least those that appreciate free jazz. This is from a recent performance of a duo I have called Mofaya! with Belgian artist Wannes Lacompte... doing the dishes. He's done this with a bunch of great musicians, next up is with Ken Vandermark, Nate Wooley...
  2. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hey all, just your friendly local Free Jazz Fanatic here to do some more educating on some Free Jazz players that you might or might not have heard before. I decided after last week's discussion ended up happening on a Friday, I'd make this a weekly post and see what all comes of it. This week...
  3. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hey all! New to the forum and I figured I'd use my platform (albeit however small) to educate you on Kaoru Abe, a fantastic free jazz player. I looked at the previous posts on this website and saw that his name was mentioned less than the number of fingers on the average saxophone player's...

  7. Solo Performer
    Hi everybody! I've done a couple solo gigs with own material and just wanted to get some feedback from fellow saxophonists. I already posted this at a free jazz-thread, but there haven't been any comments, so I try this sub-forum. Here's a clip of my latest solo sax concert. Still working with...

    Hey folks (and folkettes?) The new Cactus Truck album is available online now at bandcamp! It is taken from three separate concerts from our 37 concert tour across the USA last fall and features Jeb Bishop and Roy Campbell as guests. The actual physical CD comes out next week but since most of...
  9. Music Venues Around the World
    Hey everyone! I'm currently in the middle of booking a big tour of the USA with a trio I'm in called Cactus Truck. It's very full on high energy free jazz so I realize it's not ideal for every jazz venue, though it's been a while since I've had a beer thrown at me so why not...
  10. General Mouthpiece Discussion
