A rare series of video's of King Curtis two month's before his murder. Showing his " smack tongue " and his version of the trill on the side keys. I would put the link up but they never work for me. Just go on youtube for Champion Jack Dupree & King Curtis. A trip back to the jazz festival 1971.

My wife's current favourite tune in her iPhone. Only problem is she can't understand why I can't play like King Curtis!

Cos you need a new, very expensive sax.... And time to get up to standard. Missed a chance, methinks... ;}

That one's not going to fly, I fear. With three saxes around the place, the best I can hope for is the odd new mouthpiece now and again!

Hey, but think positive - it's my birthday tomorrow - maybe that big package I saw being delivered earlier is the Andy Sheppard tenor - is there a Hong Kong model?

And he was an artist as well. He lived for some years here in Sweden (Scania) in the early 70's. Look at some of his paintings:

I would like arrange a concert with Champion Dupree music. Sax Gordon recorded with Dupree in the early 90's and he knows a piano player in Germany that can play in Dupree's style. And then Champion's guitarr player, Ken Lending, is living in Copenhagen ....
