Chris, I hear so much improvement. This track to my ears is you breaking through a barrier. You are no longer just playing notes/dots you are in the music and a part of it. For some the transition could be too subtle to notice, but just hearing the next track (that I presume was recorded some time earlier) says it all. With time you will find ways to refine what each tune means to you and give it even more of yourself.
Your tone is very controlled, which is necessary initially to play in tune and train your body to the instrument. At some junction, when you have enough confidence, you can start to incorporate other devices that are part of a sax player's "vocal" vocabulary. An easy one to start with that shouldn't take much concentration is dynamics. This is just too easy, but it always amazes me how many (advanced) players just play at one level of volume and don't take advantage of all that dynamics can communicate. I won't list all the others, you're probably aware of them anyway, but dynamics is easy and shouldn't disrupt, but rather augment where you're at right now.
Only problem for you is that now that you've broken through we expect everything to be at least up to the same standard. Great work!
Hi Wade, many thanks for the advice and continuing support, I guess the higher the bar goes the easier it is to dip underneath. It's kinda 'spooky' you mentioned dynamics as I was talking to Mike about that and also my tutor mentioned the same thing on Thursday. Once again thanks for your reply.
