There are some videos that make me want to practice more. There are others that make me want to give up. This was some of each!

Michael Brecker was an INCREDIBLE player. I'm always shocked by how easily he could get around the instrument, from the Low Bb to...really high. Plus, his lines were just incredible, since they are completely unhindered by his technique. He could pretty much play anything that he could think. It's almost like his technique was so good that he had a direct link from his brain to the sounds coming out of the horn.

Shows that he was interested in the potential of electronics and sax long before the EWI made its appearance.
Didn't he start with a lyricon, the earliest iteration of wind controllers?

He never ceases to amaze. That looked like a silver neck on a lacquered horn. maybe he didn't want to drill into the matching neck or maybe he was just intop checking out diff. necks back then. I never checked out a diff. neck I hope they matched my **** up right at the factory. Then again who the f am I?
