Sorry Al. I knew I would be misunderstood and I guess I did overstate it. Certainly some pianists will sound a LOT better than others, even hitting one note, let alone a chord. And I happen to think the piano is in many ways more difficult to master (and I mean master, not just get by on) than the sax. So much more to pay attention to in terms of chords, right hand, left hand, bass line, etc. So sorry if I offended any pianists out there. My point still stands, though. Intonation, tone quality, etc are so critical on the sax, before you have a chance of sounding good.Al Stevens said:Sigh.
