Happy Holidays from Einsteinium Quartet
Some selections from our recent performance in the lobby preceding the Dance-along Nutcracker at Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco.
The lobby was really live and we got surprisingly good audio.
I'm on bari.
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
My quartet will be playing at Chris' Jazz Café tomorrow, Wednesday September 17th, from 8-12. It's a high energy group, and we'll be playing my originals and arrangements as well as standards. The group will feature:
Dan Rufolo, piano
Brian Howell, bass
Dave Hardy, drums
I'd like to think I'm a (reasonably) seasoned player, but I'm having some big issues with tuning since my trumpet buddy has bought a new horn and as you can imagine it's driving me absolutely mad.
I play most of the time in a section with said trumpeter, and 'till now we've been ok...
Hi, this is a tune from my concert at the Alexanderplatz Jazz Club in Rome.
The tune is entitled "silent bob" : I usually write pieces full of chords and substitutions, but for the first time I wanted to write a minimalist tune, a sort of swing mantra with 2 chords, I think the tiltle represents...
This is a recent live recording from a band that I am a part of, my solo starts around 1:35. Any comments or criticism would be welcome, and if you want to listen to the whole song and give your feedback, that would be cool too! :)
Hi, how would I communicate with people that live near me, to share my love of playing saxophone? I have played several years on and off, but being self taught I have only played at home, with the odd performance for friends or colleagues at parties. It would be nice to get together with any...
My band is Progress, and a few days ago we got a recording of our show at Skinny's Ballroom in Austin! It's a board mix, but Skinny's usually does a good job of making board mix recordings sound pretty decent. We've put some videos up in the past, but the sound quality has always been a bit...
Hi SOTW community!
I wanted to let you all know about an exciting, new, and adventurous jazz jam session I am hosting in north orange county, California. The goal of this session is not to be just another Real Book jam, but a place to create, connect, and cultivate. For more info on what this...
I had my first gig with a clip on microphone on bari last week, and I noticed that the clip on they used picked up the low A a lot louder than anything else coming from my instrument. It was a condensator microphone, a pretty good one. But something didn't really fit. I never had that...
i know i posted a similar thread to this before but this time a wanted specific info on clip on mics. i'm very strongly considering buying one as i frequently find myself moving around on gigs and ending up of mic. however i really know NOTHING about sound engineering as normally ill just play...

When I was a teenager I spent hours listening to-and staring at-Joshua Redman's album "Joshua Redman". I dreamed of one day playing like him. Maybe even meeting him.
I never imagined sitting at the Blue Note in NYC listening to him perform a song I wrote!

Don's glorious solo from the live "Americans In Europe" recording: transcription, analysis, and a clip!
Here's what Sonny Stitt said about him:
"Years ago the game was vicious, cutthroat. Can you imagine Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Chu Berry, Don Byas, and Ben Webster on the same little jam...

He's playing with the Moutin Reunion Quartet, at Cliff Bell's. If this were happening a couple of weeks later, I'd be making a field trip. Looks like this group is on a North American tour -- catch 'em if you can.
