Yes I love the Tubby Hayes one too but I'm afraid that's quite a different animal and benefits from all the super backing and it's all very nice,but like I said I listened to lots and had to put the one I did in,there are a few asian players and the second one put in by tyrimmy WARREN HILL that could all be using the same score and they all roll along at a nice pace with a certain build up as they go but the one I opted for was because although the tonal quality might leave something to be desired (the same as all the rest to be fair) that piece with very little backing builds bar on bar to an amazing climax(am I allowed to say that) and imparts more power into the tune than all the others put together.SO THERE....john

I didn't like any of them Even the Tubby Hayes one managed to sound cheesy (but not as much as the others).

As a newbie - I'm probably not qualified to say so - but amen to that

I may not know much about music - but I know what I don't like - ;} and it seems to me some tunes just don't transfer well to the saxamophone.... personal preference I guess

That's the beauty of music we don't have to like each others preference or none at all for that matter, otherwise music would be boring ;}
I still like the sound of Tubby's saxamophone ;} ;}

What is it about Beatles songs? I can't see what all the fuss is about. Simple tunes with apt lyrics for the times. I put them in with the Sound of music and Abba. The tunes won't swing and they hardly rock and the best versions were covers by other bands. I do like to play the long and winding rd though and norwegian wood, and penny lane is fun and I used to play a reggae version of eleanor rigby..........come to think of it........I suppose they're modern folk songs.

The later stuff - say from Sgt Pepper on, was rather different.

I think one of the interesting things is that most of the Asian players were using a transcription by Warren Hill I must have a look for it,I know you can get it up,on you tube but it would be good to have it on paper,I suppose it must be available somewhere,maybe we could use it as a long term project for the meet that would keep us busy for quite a while:))):))):))):w00t: .......John
