Today marks the release of my band Progger's third album, "Scattering," which is our first as a member of Ropeadope...

    Hello, glorious SOTW Canadians! I'm going to have the distinguished pleasure of bringing my funk-jazz-fusion squad, Progger, to the wonderful Rex Hotel in Toronto for two nights, June 30 and July 1 of this year.

  3. Rock 'n Roll Saxophone
    Next week I'm trying out for the tenor spot in a soul-Blues-Rock cover band. They advertised on the main musicians b.b. in Spain and speaking to the leader I learned that the current tenor player is leaving and they also have had some other personnel changes. They are not a professional band and...
  4. Jazz and Improvisation
    I know there are threads that already exist that discuss this, but I want to do it a bit differently. The classic discussion in music and in jazz about how some players have little technique and can emotionally move you, some players have dazzling technique but no story and some players are...

  9. Jazz and Improvisation
    I'm really loving the soul-jazz style and I was just wondering if you guys had any hints and tips about how to get to grips with this style. My improvisation is good enough to cope with most major and minor chords, but if the extensions are any more than 9th I fail :( I listen to alot of Hank...
