Okay: Just to prove to myself that this recent France & Italy tour wasn't a hallucination, I thought I'd put up something from my Valentine's Day gig at the (glorious! beautiful!) Jazz Club Torino, with the Blue Lake Jazz 5...

I'm playing alto (took it for granted it would be easier to get on the plane than a tenor...), and my good friend Tom Stansell is on his Martin tenor, working to channel his Inner Mobley. Tom's up first; the alto kicks in around 3:10... Here's the first or second tune of the night:

City Slicker

(Rumors abound that there's a board recording of our concert at the Altitude Jazz Fest in Briancon, but since that has steadfastly refused to materialize, here's yet another trusty H4 recording...)

Nice exploration of the harmonic parameters in your solo. Kind of fragmented, but I guess that goes with exploring that sort of territory. Contrasts well with the tenor solo. Would have been great to have been there to hear it in person. Kudos.

Thanks for your comments, Wade and Rufusax! Yeah, it was a nice group, and there was definitely a contrast in sax styles... (You should hear Tom live: butter 'n chocolate...)

Wade: I'd probably agree with "fragmented"... The alto has always been for me the more "consonant" of my two horns -- I do stuff on tenor I don't do on alto, and I'm trying to push my alto more into that turf. Gets a little "seat-of-the-pantsy" at times!

Thanks, guys...
