Matthew -- Nice to see another recording from you. Thanks.

Just viewed your main YouTube page and now I see a big part of why you've made so much progress on the sax so quickly: twenty years of transcribing sax solos for jazz guitar! Now I don't feel so bad for being years and years behind you, even though you've been playing only a matter of months.

About the new recording: I would just comment that your playing on it sounds more assured and natural than I recall it being on your early recordings. I seem to remember that on your early recordings I had a feeling like the transitions between notes lacked precision in a way I couldn't really describe. I don't know whether it was a matter of breath support, keywork, tonguing, or what. I don't sense that in this recording, sounds like you have good technical control over the sax and are able to use the instrument naturally to play what you want and sound the way you want.
