Your playing has changed lately. There's an effortless, easiness about it. That's quite apart from the wonderful sound you're making. I like it.
I love this backing track, just heard it on another piece by SaxMan. I'm assuming it is available on this forum somewhere... I really should frequent more often, but another addition to the family has taken even more time up recently.
Davey, this is indeed my favourite excerpt of yours I've heard. Your less is more approach is definitely playing dividends. Sounds great, tasteful. Miles Davis said something on the lines of, it isn't what you play it's what you don't....Great advice. I particularly like what you do at 1m 10 to 1m 35... The start of that phrase, the space, and your first use of the G# altissimo - that particular note that time..the way you play up and into it, it's yearning, beautiful. Very reminiscent of early Brecker when he uses less is more.
Cheers for sharing!
(If your interested, and anyone else is, have a listen to one of my favourite Brecker solos, and one of my favourite pieces on a certain genre. I didn't learn many Brecker solos note for note, but this one I did many moons ago. From Billy Cobham's Crosswinds album, it's a piece called 'Heather' - also featuring the late and great George Duke...Brecker starts it slowly and builds it, both in intensity and note approach. I must dig out some other stuff of Brecker doing this.
