  1. Rock 'n Roll Saxophone
    Most everyone thinks that B.B.King wrote and/or first recorded The Thrill Is Gone, but it ain't so. The song was a show tune written by Lew Brown and Ray Henderson back in the 30's and recorded by a number of singers like Sarah Vaughn and Hadda Brooks. However it was turned into an R&B...

    I'm only getting into teaching sax now. What good method books and solo books are there for beginners and intermediate players? I have a really great student (tenor sax) who needs a complete method (scales, solos, overtone studies, etudes, and sight reading). He wants to be a jazzer, but I...

  4. Conn
    Hi, Yesterday I went to take a look at a Conn Tenor Sax. The serial number was N140198. Since I do not have a lot of experience, I wondered if you guys could give me some more information about this tenor sax, e.g. what model it is, the quality of the sax and experience if you have been...

    Hey there fellow saxophonists! I just purchased a brand-new La Voix II tenor sax, and I wanted the general consensus on their quality. Oh and it is the black nickel model. Thank you all very much :)
  6. Tenor mpc
    I have been reading the forum posts and I am overwhelmed. My son is a flute player who doubles on tenor sax for jazz band. He has a Yamaha that he has been playing for 2 1/2 years and would like a jazz friendly mouthpiece. Question 1: We live in a small city in the midwest and would have to...

    I just got a 1949 Buescher Big B a couple weeks ago and haven't played it very much. I'm not a tenor player as you can probably tell but I thought I'd record myself a little. I still need to buy an actual mouthpiece because this Brilhart isn't doing it. Feel free to comment (and try to enjoy)...

    Hi everyone! I am a sophomore in high school and my current tenor, a circa 1920s Selmer American NY Silver Plated tenor, is not cutting it. I have had it since November and I have had to take it into the shop at least twice a month. My private instructor has been keeping an eye out on saxes for...

  14. Tenor mpc
    Ok, I have been playing Alto Sax for more than 5 years now and have reached grade 7, doing grade 8 (ABRSM). I bought a Tenor not long back and need to upgrade the mouthpiece as it still has the standard mouthpice (I know I should have upgraded straight away) but I really need to upgrade now...
  15. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    So I'm brand new to this forum and I'm glad I signed up, because I'm lost. I'm looking around for a new tenor sax and the only ones I seem to be able to find are the OPUS USA models. I'm looking for a relatively cheap sax (anywhere from $400-$1500) and a step above beginner (not professional)...
  16. Bb Tenor
    Hi there people -- it's a bit of a long intro, so you can read the problems first and /then/ the intro if it's easier. xD I'm a new member on this site, but I've been reading through a lot of topics and threads that may or may not be my problem. I'm a high schooler and have been playing alto...

    Hi does anyone have any backing tracks (and maybe sheet music) you've created for tenor sax? It can be any genre but I prefer jazz and blues. Many thanks

    Hey guys, I'm starting to get addicted to recording myself...:toothy10: Here's "In a Sentimental Mood". This is my first time looking at it (although I've heard it many times), so I'm a bit unfamiliar with the chord changes. Let me know what you think! I'm using my Phil-Tone Eclipse piece here...
