Yeah, I remember him. He always had such a great sound. Quite elegant actually.
Like skipping pebbles off a still pond.....................Enough to make any sax player jealous with envy!

And I understand he hasn't been playing all that long either!

Dajngo fans both, Jazzaferri & I were thinking of this for the "Ballad of the month" thread.
I wonder if that's a commercial playalong track that Daisy is using?

He often uses Jamie Aebersold tracks for his recordings. Good chance of a reply if you post the question in youtube.

Thanks for the kind words! The backing track is from Hal Leonard's Real Book playalongs, Volume 1. I pretty much use these (and volume 2) exclusively as they are good value. You can find them on Amazon. Please note that each pack contains 3 CDs, and no written music, it assumes prior ownership of the Real books themselves. There are a few tracks on the CD's the don't feature in the European editions of the Real Book, Nuages being one of them so I had to transcribe this by ear.

I play with a few jazz quartets now, and I would say we all pretty much use the Hal Leonard real books. I think if you want to play out, it is well worth buying all three volumes in your chosen instrument key. I also have them in Concert for my guitar work, and so I can lend to pianists and bassists who might be sitting in. It's a hefty investment, but its still cheaper than two Xbox games.. so perhaps that puts it into perspective.

I know that the Hal Leonard real books are available free online on pdf format, I have these, but these are the older editions and it's a real pain to print them out. I have an Ipad, and have considered taking them out in this way, but you can't beat flicking through yer actual "book" for new tunes to play!!

Haven't been coming to the Caf' regularly for a long time for one reason and another but I seem to remember Daisy from the old Breakfast room days. So he hasn't been playing all that long. That is really good - thanks for posting - Kev - inspiration for me to do more melodic stuff on the soprano and I would hope an inspiration to newbies on here as to what can be achieved with a few years practice. The sax arrangement was very nice (I hate the word nice - but it was very nice!) naa it wer luvely - I luvved it.

Just in case anyone's confused, Spike beat me with a reply, before I could authorise Crazydaisydoo's post.

Sorry I mixed up Aebersold and Leonard :shocked:

Welcome back Matt, you'd stopped posting by the time I joined, lots of new members here - perhaps you can ring the doorbell and introduce yourself to the new guys...

Yes Nuages for Ballad of the Month would be way cool.

One advantage of playing guitar as well is if I am not too lazy I can make my own backing tracks.

Hopefully next month as I gave my left middle finger a real good pinch between the ground and 80 lbs of pavers. Back to playing after a couple of weks but chords still hurt a bit.

I had two thoughts, listening to Mathew's youtube clips.
1/ I wish I hadn't sold that Vandoren Blue Java tenor mpc I had
2/ I must make some videos of me & Jamey A [though they wont sound as good :) - nice work, Mathew! ]

Yes I've been another follower of Craisydaisydoo over the years, quite exceptional, he may have been playing sax a relatively short time, but I also understand has played guitar and been listening to jazz for far longer... & it shows!
Makes me think I should have a crack at some of these ballads of the month projects


Cheers & ciao
