Hi there! I'm Juju, I've been playing the saxophone for approximately 23 years. I play all saxes, but my main instrument is the tenor. I have been playing a Mark VI for a long time. My husband recently got a Conn 30M but still prefers his 10M, so I tried it and absolutely love the sound! Now I hope he won't change his mind!

Have only driven through (and under the river). Good place, I believe.

Wow, what a nice welcome. Thanks, everyone! :)
@ Tom: I love Jazz. My favourite players are Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Steve Grossmann, Stan Getz... (oh dear, there are so many players I love!). In Hamburg I played in a big band and a saxophone quartet, but I haven't really found a regular band here in London. I mainly play for myself (there is enough stuff to practise!) or with my husband. I don't play many gigs. The last gig was back in December, it was a with a big band featuring Paul Young doing music from his "rock swings" album. I also play baritone in my husband's septet, but there aren't many gigs. The next septet gig will be around Easter...

Hello Paul! My post #15 might answer some of your questions ;)
:blush: Thanks Juju! I love Jazz to with my current favorite being John Coltrane's version of 'Like Someone in Love' and Sonny Rollins 'Tenor Madness' and 'You Don't Know What Love Is'.

When I can afford the GAS a Bari is on the horizon!
