I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe.

This is my first time on the forum (Just joined) and I wanted to say a warm greeting to all my fellow sax players

A little about me. I live in NYC (which is a little hectic at the moment) and I am currently returning to playing sax after 11 years away from it. I played a little in high school but stopped soon after as life got in the way.

Current set up is a Yamaha yas 23 alto (very beat up but still fairly playable) and a selmer c* mouthpiece w/ a BG Duo lig. Reeds I’m trying out are Boston sax shop #3 which I must say are very nice.

Looking forward to chatting and learning from y’all!

I don't need another mouthpiece; but . . .

Greetings from Canada. It sounds like a good set up to start back up. Welcome !

Hey Clive!

I'm starting to have a new-found love of old Jazz numbers and ballads. e.g Lester Young "Stardust" ; Dexter Gordon "Darn that Dream" ; John Coltrane " I'm Old fashioned" ; Paul Desmond " All through the night"

I've actually been transcribing most of these by ear for alto since I've had the time with everything going on and having loads of fun. Ballads, at least for me, are a more fun alternative to long tones
