Hey, it's nice to have a spot to marinate in all things saxophone. I'm in my 60s, and semi-professional. I play mostly tenor, but I just bought an alto to scratch an itch -- and see if there's such a thing as divided loyalty. And actually, to be quite honest, what nudged me to the alto was that "My One and Only Love" in the standard key starts on an A on the tenor, which makes playing it in the lower register not quite kosher. Not that problem for the alto in that key.
