Bob Ackerman, I haven't seen any youtube demo's lately from this great sax enthusiast. Does any one know if he is still doing sax business?
He was in PA for a bit in the Water Gap, but he and Pam moved to Pawley's Island, SC a few years ago. He's had a lot of problems lately with playing. He crushed his pinky in a van a few years back making tenor and clarinet almost impossible even after physio and rehab. More recently he's cracked some ribs after taking a fall. That being said, I still get calls where we geek out about different chambers, facing shapes, classical music, politics etc. I was the last person to work in Bob's shop in Irvington after a long list that included Freddie Gregory, Ted Klum, Jon Van Wie and Adam Niewood. Felt like magic down there.Where is he these days? Used to see him around all the time, but it's been a few years.
