Thank you Ladies.
I got the idea to record this song after watching a BBC4 program about Agnetha. BTW. She has recorded a new CD.
This is one of the songs, its called Bubble.
Nothing can,t become something. Something can,t become nothing.
Etc. Great Lyrics and melody.

Nice job. I especially liked the soprano tone. It is close to my concept of what a soprano should sound like. Have you ever experimented with playing 3rd space C# with low C#'s fingering and the octave key? It can help to make the otherwise dry and open sounding C# match the timbre of the D and other surrounding notes when used in a descending line. Depending on the sax, sometimes lifting the first finger helps.

Playing the lower C# fingering is an option, but I find if I am in good practice with the Sop, the open C# is by far the best to sound. The trouble is playing Tenor for 99% of the time. Also I just bought a box of RJS to try on Sop, but I think the red Java are more flexable for sop. So I think I'll be going back to Vandoren for Sop and use the RJS for Tenor.
All in all, I think more Sop practice and perhaps a bit of experimentation with the (one ) mic position, or perhaps two.
