i've been tootling along on my tenor for about a month to six weeks now.

at first, i was just really amazed at how easy it was to just whip up and down a scale and how great it sounded. but then, i started playing along to cd's - about a week ago - and my technique has taken a quantum leap! it's rather amazing at how quickly i progressed just from that.

now, i'm going to go to a jam session i set up. two bass players, a drummer and me. i'm a huge, massive ornette coleman fan, and by that i don't mean i'm obese.

marton, you little monkey! It appears you've come a long way in a short time even if you aren't quite sure how short a time yourself. If this jam and its participants are real - and i think I have to assume they are - then I admire you for having the nerve to give this a shot. Talk of "grumpy old standards" got me wondering just what you were intending to play. Or are you just going to trust to enthusiasm and confidence?
