  1. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    The saxophone with its' aggressive and charming tone, approaches the unknown; Usually turns out to be a "rock 'n' roll star". For this reason, I have created a Spotify Playlist with some rock songs with saxophone. If you know any rock song with saxophone -which I haven't added to this playlist-...

    Hey SOTW crew! Many of you have been insanely supportive of my jazz/funk group, Progger, over the last few years, and I can't tell ya how much I appreciate it. We just put up a new video today, and preorders for our fourth album are live, as well! The video is for a tune called "Housewives" that...
  3. 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...

    What kind of mouthpiece you would recommend for rock/ pop song?
  5. Announcements and Bulletin Board
    Hey, SOTW! This whole community has always been a serious bed of support for pretty much every project I've ever put together, which makes me feel incredibly happy and grateful. Today marks the release of my band Progger's third album, "Scattering," which is our first as a member of Ropeadope...
  6. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I play a selmer signet tenor and a selmer as300. As of right now I am using a Bundy mouthpiece on the Tenor and a Premiere HITE on the alto(so i guess you could say almost anything is an improvement). Also, I use the standard Rovner ligature on both for hard rubber mouthpieces. I like to use La...

  9. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    Hey guys, my band's album is out today! We're pretty durn happy with the results, and I hope the SOTW crew likes it too. It's all original funk-fusion, and it ranges from atmospheric to pretty aggressive, so it's probably not for everybody. But we put a lot of love into it and the sessions and...

    Hello everyone. I Just wanted to post a thread about my new recording with my new project called "Willamette". It's a straight-up rock recording, fronted by myself on baritone saxophone. It's big, nasty and pretty loud, and all songs are my original compositions. Please feel free to preview...

    I'm gonna be heading out on the road with Nelo this week for a quick run of shows in Austin, Ft. Worth, Montana, Washington, and Oregon. If any SOTW members happen to be in the neighborhood for any of those shows, and feel like coming to check out some rawk 'n roll, let's have a beer! (People...
  13. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    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...
  14. Announcements and Bulletin Board
    If you're in Austin this weekend, and you're looking for some actual music played by actual musicians (instead of DJs) but you still want to go downtown-ish, and you want to hear some modern beats juxtaposed with chord progressions that don't come straight from a Tom Petty song (even though Tom...
  15. Recordings, Movies
    I heard a great song in a bar the other day. I used my Shazam app but there was too much background noise. It was Rock, bordering on Heavy Metal, but it had these awesome horn lines (mostly trumpet, I believe). It was completely instrumental. I know that's barely anything to go on, but any help...
  16. Playing Songs
    Does anyone have examples of jazz groups/players who have covered popular songs by non jazz artists? I'm looking for something like these two videos; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pF2s2Rh_lnE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kt4J_geuK8 Any suggestions/examples/commentary welcome. :)
  17. SOTW Member Compositions & Arrangements
    I actually did this one about a year ago, but I completely forgot it and just found it in my Arrangements folder. This is Finale audio of my big band arrangement of "B.Y.O.B." by System of a Down. Like the original, it's an angry-sounding chart in an relatively unusual key for big band –...

  19. Brand Name Players ...
    Hey everyone, I've been playing sax (alto and tenor) for a while now... always really been into rock and blues. Like many of you, I've always been in search of the "perfect" sound and I found mine on a rarely-listened to Pink Floyd album. At about 2:10 on a track called "The Gunner's Dream"...
  20. Eb Baritone
    I'm looking for a vintage bari that can cut through the sound of a full-tilt rock band. NOT mellow, NOT rich, I'm looking for a bright searing sound that can peel the paint off the walls. Any suggestions for a mouthpiece/reed/horn combination that will get me there? Thanks for any help! John
