Thanks Koumou for your explanation. Wonderful how Bulgaria, Macedonia, Rhodes and The Netherlands end all up together in one thread.Rennie, I tried to find out where he's from but I could not. I think he's either Bulgarian or from one of the ex republics of Yugoslavia. Taxim is a term used in the Balkans, as well as in other countries, for a non rhythmic musical improvisation expressing deep sorrow. Here's an example played on clarinet
By the way, my sax teacher is a Dutch lady by the name of Jacquelien Deiman, who lives here in Rhodes.
You made that sax for him!? What sort of features does this instrument have?He is from Macedonia. I made him Custom C alto. There are few very good players there about the same level notably Feruz Mustafov. They play very closed tip .065-.070 high baffle pieces to be able to do the double staccato.
