sounds excellent davey, nice use of reverb here and there... and liked the "egyptian" part(??) at 1.23, quite unexpected. nice altissimo at the end there.

I'm always astounded by your sound. What's the secret?

I hope astounded in a good way Pete :(:))):))):))) well the secret for me is hard bloody graft :))) as folk might have seen on here I've always got that horn in my mouth . You know like me theres no quick fix but just hard work. I work on EVERY note I play, my mind,body etc etc. My dream mps came my way thanks to your good self and all I can say on the PPT's for tenor are there just making my job much easier and nicer. I have forgot at last about that lump of metal/rubber in my mouth and I am more free to just close my eyes and fall into the music so again a huge thanks to you,Ed and Morgan for giving me my dream pieces :welldone

Thank you, I really enjoyed listening to that, as I have with all your recordings with your new sax. Something else entirely. Please don't leave it too long before sharing some more :)

It sounds so right. Effortless. There's a "kid in a sweet shop" feeling to your playing just lately lol

Hey thanks Colin. I must say since getting my new soprano mp, my new PPT hard rubber tenor mp and now my new tenor I've forgot about the tools and been set free if that makes sense . That's when you know you have a sweet setup as you do stop looking at gear and forget about the big lump of metal in your hands and mouth and just hear the music. I feel like i'm in a good place so i'm enjoying playing again. We all know about them big up and down periods, we all have them.

he is using a stock 3 opening plastic mouthpiece with a chipped tip and baritone reed on it, he ditched his Guardalas, PPT'S, lawtons and other known pieces! :)))


as said on sotw Davey, your solo makes more of a story here.


edit: sax sounds full and nice too

no problem,
what i mean is when playing a solo the "story" you tell is like watching a movie or reading a book, if you get that, it would be silly getting to the climax early, if that makes sense, so what i am meaning is when you did your solo it felt different and felt more solid and had a nice build up, the 'action' bits were nicely used and you pulled it down well, it was a compliment, it just felt a more mature solid solo.

make sense now?

for sure, the best way indeed, i know a lot of players just 1 trick pony it, i done that in the past too, i think we all do at some point, and bang their licks n trix in a short burst then run out of steam, the key is making the "story" make sense and last if needed :)!
