Hello Folks

It's great to be amongst beginners, improvers and masters like yourselves who have come to enjoy and appreciate the more subtler, dare I say more enriched, sounds and music which unfortunately is considered too oblique, perhaps even esoteric by general society. I'm looking forward to any matters of opinion you all might have regarding our beloved saxophone instruments and the sounds which are produced from such. Is there anybody here from the Midlands?

Thank you all folks for the warm reception. I feel very welcomed. Taz: I will own up towards having an appetite for the humble pork pie every once in a while; I just thought I'd make a subtle nod to one of my favourite Mingus tracks for my username.
Thanks again brothers, I'm looking forward to 'having a chat' with you all in good time :)

Welcome to the caff©, PorkPiePat.

Used to have a pork pie hat but the gravy kept running into my eyes. There's nothing like the old ones, thank goodness.

ENJOY!

Hi PorkPiePat,

Welcome to the Cafe! The place full of nutters, I mean saxophonists :)))

I like wearing Porkie Pie Hats as my musical hat but will be seen in a Trilby the rest of the time :D

You never said what saxophone you play nor the type of music you enjoy. We're a nosy lot so let us know ;}

Happy blowing from the wet and windy Isle of Man,

Paul

This requires instant moderation. Everyone knows that Manchester enjoys an average eighteen hours of sunshine per day.

I was brought up there, and spent most of my time in wellies and a rain coat. Fair comment.

Welcome Porkpiehat and of course the reference in Mingus is to Lester Young, one of the greats of jazz sax.
Now when my son started at Salford Uni he was told it was untrue about the persistent rain. Rather it only rained twice a year there - once for eight months and once for four months...
