nice " tropical" feel, almost calypso-ish or perhaps south-african influenced with the guitar playing in a manner that reminds me of the african " Kalimba" or thumb piano. Always very competently played on the nino with a nice deep warm sound.

Yes, I agree with milandro wholeheartedly. I couldn't do better than that accessment. Nice morning tune to sip my coffee by. I could really enjoy myself experiencing your duo live sipping a martini and relaxing.

Wade, how about once in awhile something upbeat? I would like to hear you all frenetic and unbridled complete with blemished notes, gurgling sounds
from saliva leaking through the tone holes, maybe even some intermittent belching, flatulence! Your calll of course. I'm not fussy!

I'm a curious sort....I'd most likely order another martini.

How do you make a sopranino saxophone belch or flatulate?

Unless you mean...:shock:

Thanks all for your comments and encouragement towards audible bodily functions. The guitarist has worked hard the past year and is playing particularly well. He fights with putting a bit too much into the layers of sound over his loop(s), but this one works quite well and leaves me enough room to do simple embellishments. As noted I guess it works from cheery to bleary depending on what you're drinking or the time of day.

The nino is a Yanagisawa with a Yani HR mouthpiece that was modified by Joe at Soprano Planet. The intonation is not the best on this horn with A2 and above tending to be sharp. My Chinese Jinbao horn has better intonation but the Yani has a warmer tone. The reed was probably a Vandoren 3 (not sure as this was played several months ago).

This is not your most interesting piece Wade. It's a bit lightweight for me, maybe it's 'cause I don't dig on soprano, don't know - but certainly the playing is very good, and I can appreciate it for that reason alone.

Well 'ninos are lighter in weight than sopranos...

Lots would say the sopranino IS a mistake. Speaking of lightweight here's a very old Hungarian joke for Marton:

What's the lightest thing in the world? Lepka fing! (sorry about the spelling. Hungarian is something I heard but never wrote).
