Thanks guys. Love this song. Would be interested in some other people's takes on this one. Just listening back to it I think I need to sit more on the beat rather than anticipating too much - e.g. some of the runs finish slightly too early. Maybe I should have a few drinks first before recording. Any other feedback on how to improve would be very welcome. Looking forward to some other people's recordings...

Hey Tobes... Do nothing to it ... That feel was excellent.. You took me on a journey... Like a storey teller using the Sax as your medium...
You are very talented... excellent feel , excellent tone

Thank you Adrian

Ps I would buy tickets!!

Thanks guys. Love this song.

Same here, i too love this song and i listened to it being played a few months ago by tenor saxophonist Ben Clatworthy (he also played Parrjazz on tuesday night) very good player :thumb:
Anyhows he said something very interesting before he played the tune, saying it was written for his great grandmother Gertrude Lawrence and because of this the song had a special meaning to him (which it would).
He played the tune brilliantly with plenty of emotion, made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up :)

Just thought i would share this useless bit of info with you :)

Really good playing, Tobes. I like the slightly early anticipation personally - gives it a better flow IMHO, especially as Body and Soul can so easily drone on and become a little directionless. It also adds a slight tension to proceedings, which I find appealing, so don't change it for my benefit

The tone you produced was really appealing, and sounded really appropriate. On behalf of the Welsh Jury I would give it an 8!
Kind regards
Tom

Very nice indeed I could listen to this kind of sax all day and wish like mad I could play like that,like Adrian said don't change anything because every time you play it it will be a little different anyway and every playing will be a different journey....really nice....john

Hi Tobes,
As others have said, great playing, are you sure your other name is not Scott Hamilton!

Phrasing and sub tone, some would die (or kill for)
Top marks.
Cheers
