Hey Tommy, how long you been playing? Great tone plus dynamics, vibrato and some nice little upward bends. And the timing's not bad for unaccompanied either. Nice accoustic hall. Wish the tenors in my sax band had that tone and projection.
Good stuff for a first.
I think your right Tommy, it does sound a little flat, try pushing the mouthpiece on a little further. That should cure the problem. Other than that, it sounds very very nice, although I'd try to pick a track that doesn't have any sax on it otherwise it can become a bit of a competition. Good tone, I like it.
Yes your tone is quite bright, but I don't think it's fully developed yet. I think it will mellow down a little more as you improve and as your diaphragm and breath control develop.
This is just a personal thing, but I feel that you should try to be more accurate when hitting some of the higher notes. Sometimes it sounds really nice to bend a note up, other times (and this is only my opinion) it sounds awful. Please don't take these comments personally as I can sound like I'm being a bit harsh!
Whilst played ok, I felt that the vibrato let you down, too course & wide - sounds just like me!! I'm sure others could add some more constructive comments.
Don't understand why this thread goes unanswered as it is great that we post recordings, I believe it helps.. appreciated.
