Just joined this forum, I've browsed it for awhile some very informative posts and positive people on this forum. I'm a relative newcomer to sax, back in the early 80's I departed from playing guitar for awhile, picked up a used sax and took some lessons, played for three years. Family, work and school pretty much eliminated my free time so I put it away for 20 years and started back up again 5 years ago, I think in some ways coming back later has made it much more fun for me. Looking back I wish I would have kept up on it but that's all water under the bridge. I'm pretty much a R&R, Blues, R&B focused player, I love listening to jazz but don't have the chops to go that route. My favorite players Red Prysock, Plas Johnson, Lee Allen, Sil Austin, King Curtis, Jr. Walker, Big Jay Mcneely and lately I've been enjoying listening to Pete's latest album which really touches on that genre of music nicely. I play in a few bands locally for fun, mostly local roadhouses (what's left of them) and pubs/bars, the fair circuit during the summer and local events. see ya!
