  1. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    Hey Everyone, here's one of my group's last performances at the Cornelia Street Cafe. It's about the chess matches between Gary Kasparov and IBM's gaming computer Deep Blue. Gary won the first round and IBM requested a rematch, which he gave and lost. Gary requested a third "rubber" match (which...

    Dear Saxophonists, It's been 5 years before I decided to finally upload my first YouTube song (non-originally composed), in the midst of the many tumultuous global and personal events that are happening right now. I played on a curved Yani-made stencil soprano, using a Beechler metal 7 and...
  4. Playing Songs
    Hey all! I'm hoping to participate in a solo competition on alto this summer, and for this competition we (the performers) have to take care of all copyright issues. I was going to play the third movement of the Creston Sonata since I learned it in the past and it's just under 4 minutes, but the...

  6. High School and College
    Hello Reader, Once September is reached, I will be a Junior in High School (Grade 11), and I'm not exactly sure if this year or the next year is the best time to audition for a college that mainly focuses on music, or its music program. My first choice is the Berklee College of Music in Boston...
  7. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    My saxophone choir would like to play this, but I cannot find the music anywhere. I played it over the summer, but it seemed like the parts were copied and not the originals. Any ideas? Here is the piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddYDfMkqALk
  8. Alto mpc
    Hello, Does anyone have any recommendations for an online music site where I can ship a mouthpiece to my location, play it, and if it is unsatisfying, send it back? I am interested in shipping a Bellite, but because it is expensive, I don't want to purchase it, only to find out I don't like it...
  9. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hi there, I wish we had a category in the forum to highlight and appreciate sax players and sax tunes that perhaps are not known by most of people. Right now I'm listening to Quercus album by June Tabor: voice, Iain Ballamy: tenor and soprano saxophones, Huw Warren: piano. It is an album full of...

    The old thread got very long. Now closed but still accessible. As a starter for this new one: Smart people listen to Radiohead and dumb people listen to Beyoncé, according to study
  11. High School and College
    I'm a freshman in college now at a state school with a relatively small jazz program. The program isn't bad, just smaller than many and doesn't have quite as many options as many. I'm considering what I should do in the future. I am considering transferring to the conservatory at SUNY Purchase...

  17. Jazz and Improvisation
    What are your top (10) tenor sax ballads that you could cry (or almost) listening to it? I really really like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIwTxD-auW0 and would love to know which tracks of which artists pulls your heart so much. I was listening other day to a track by Michael...
  18. The Band
    As part of my high school senior project, I am gathering a bunch of my musician friends from school to form a wind ensemble. My goal is to practice a song, study the song (or several), then perform. The only remaining aspect of the project is what song do we study? I would like recommendations...

    Hi, sax-friends Alas, my HirschMusic Publications has graduated from PayPal Buttons on a blog to a full-fledged storefront. I'm still tying up loose ends but, to the best of my knowledge, the storefront is completely functional. Anyhow, if you get a chance to check it out, you can watch...
  20. Saxophone Solo and Ensembles
    My sax quartet needs to find a few songs that are incredibly challenging for chamber music competitions. Keep in mind that we don't like playing weird music like Back Burner. We've already played the Bozza and need something as hard or harder. Does anyone have any ideas? Links from...
