Hello,

My name is Ville Kyllönen and I'm a student from Finland. I'm going to erasmus-exchange to Barcelona for three months, from 7th of September to 23rd of December. If there are some SOTW friends there who would like to meet me, please take contact. It would be fun to get together, practise English by talking about sax and life and go to some jazz gigs. Earlier this summer I was studying in Holland for a couple of weeks and met a great fellow saxist through SOTW. I'm hesitating whether to take my saxophone with me or to rent a one from there, so if you have any hints for what to do I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Cheers

Ville

Hello,

I arrived to Barcelona today. The weather is nice and warm and the city looks nice with beautiful architecture.

I´m still interested in meeting you SOTW friends here in Barcelona so don't be shy to take contact with me :) I´m here until the end of December.

Cheers!

Ville

Ok, Harri. I'll keep that in my mind from now on.

Yes, I hope I could meet someone.

Cheers

Hi Hobbes,

Thank you. It´s been great to be here. I was out last night and experiencing the Merce and it was very nice. Seeing those guys with their saxophones just made me feel more bad because I didn´t take my own sax here.

I will certainly be interested in hearing how Sonny is doing. I really haven´t paid that much attention to his newer stuff.

Yeah, a lot of travelling - it´s the second time I´m abroad, the first time being in Holland.

Thanks for hints, I´ll keep my eyes and ears open while I´m here.

Milandro, I´ll forward your regards if I see him.

And the Merce continues :)

Hello albertur,

And thank you. I`ll definitely check that place. I`ve been also informed about the Harlem Jazz Club. And it would be great to see Sonny when he comes here.

Well, I`ll keep on searching if there would be a ny saxes for rent. It would be nice if there were.

When I return back home, I`m also going to gather a new group of amateur players to have some fun.

I forgot my piece at home. But I could ask my family to send it to me.

Cheers

Ville

Oh yes, it would be great to meet too! I think it would be nice to meet SOTW fellows whenever there`s a chance. To see some jazz gig together would be cool! And I`d be interested to practise languages - so far I`ve had a short course of Spanish and today I started to study Catalan.

Cheers!
