This is very exiting news. After months, no, years of R & D and one or two extra grey hairs appearing on Dr. Pillinger's head plus one or two falling out of mine, i am pleased to say it looks like we may finally have an alto mouthpiece good enough to decorate with this distinguished brand.
I already have quite a long list of interested parties so please make sure you are on my mailing list, via the contact form here:
There will be two production facings (custom facings also available)
5* (suitable for classical and also fine for beginners)
6** (For anything else)
The 6** is more or less a 7, but may feel more like a 6* or 6 which I find to be the absolute best for jazz, pop, blues, r & b, rock and anything else including bluegrass and dubstep (Not doorstop)
Greetings folks. Nick, aka Bflat, asked me to host for October. I hope everyone likes the song I picked for this month. There are many examples to listen to on youtube. Here are two that I like:
It's hard to beat Nat King Cole's voice when it comes to ballads.
Dexter playing it at a faster tempo. This tune sounds great slow or fast.
Here are the link for sheets and a back track.
"When Sunny Gets Blue"
Don't be shy if you've never posted a tune before. Everyone is welcome no matter what your skill level. I think recording yourself can be a helpful learning tool. Besides, it's just plain fun!
Finally, here is my humble version: https://soundcloud.com/jimmylh/sunny-get-blue

I received a nice email this morning from Paul's granddaughter, who thanked me for the mention of him in the TamingTheSaxophone article on R & B saxophone players
She has mentioned it on the Paul Williams Facebook Page
So please like, share and comment there, tweet it etc.
