My wife and I both like it, and she's a tough audience!

Most of my "material" comes with a challenge: I don't write charts or dots. That means, whomever shall answer the challenge is winging it, playing what they hear. Mr. Roulette was recorded in 1972 by the musician it was written for and I took the time to write it out because it's a playable blues. Eric Marienthal played it on a non-public video lesson. One of the other students fixed the abominably poor chart I wrote, so now it's even more playable by a sight-reading saxophonist. I'm still trying to get to that level, minus the reading part. But for these later "works", they're mostly improvisations and practice sessions. The later ones aren't even tunes, although The Simulation does qualify for that term.

My hope is that more of you will give some of these a try. I have not made mixes of these with no saxophone, but I could if asked. You can ask publicly or privately.

I think that sounds great! Mix seems about right. The tenor works well for this vibe, too. Are you by any chance familiar with Coltrane's version of Soul Eyes? As it nears the end, I lost the bet with myself of what note you were going to end on. I bet the ninth. I went back to listen to my original version, and that's what I ended on, so that's what my mind "heard". Nice job, all in all!

Revision of backing track by exporting to midi and tweaking the intro and outro with the actual parts. The "AI" generated musicians aren't too bad once it's editable!
My alto part is far from what I'd want, but it demonstrates what a difference the backing track can make. I hope someone will take up the gauntlet and run with it.
(Looking at you, @Pete Effamy, among others.)
I wonder, would this melody sound good on bari?

Quirky with the promise of those pesky fingers responding to your fine ideas. Wish I played that well after just two years!

I'm excited about the discovery of how to make arrangements less linear in BiaB.

Very cool, thanks for a new take on it! I see you suffer from comment spammers offering to make you a star, too. I've had to turn off comments because I was sick of them offering their promo services in a completely disingenuous way to everyone on Soundcloud.
