sometimes the first take is the best, too much preparation and you loose the energy.. I'd like to hear you play with a real rhythm section rather than the midi version. Bet you could blow up a real storm with a decent drummer behind you..

by the way, what's that Ernst Schreiber alto mouthpiece like? I was offered one for sale recently, but couldn't find out much about them. I'm looking for something edgey, lively and responsive with a long facing and can't afford a Theo Wanne.. sorry to go off topic, but thought you'd be the guy to ask - regards, Dave

Hijack continues - is that ESM Heaven the cool-looking blue mouthpiece ? And did you buy it new, directly from ESM or ... ?

You must get 1 for your HUGE collection.Its the bonny blue with real gold spakle flake inside the blue.Brass shank.Its a great versitle piece.I've not looked once at other alto mps :shocked:
got it from Thomann.About £90.00 i think.Beats my metal expensive alto pieces hands down.Had mine a little while now so it must be good :)))

Very nice.

Those blue pieces come up on ebay here every now and again. Seem to go for good prices. I got attracted and then put off by the colour

Lots of variety in sound and once again nice lite effects touch (you've definitely got the hang of this). Well played from every aspect with your smiling disposition coming through. I frankly could care less about how fast anyone can play but listen for what they are communicating. If one can do this at speed, that's good too, but not always necessary.

I'd encourage those who would (should) emulate your fine playing to try to first understand, hear, and get the feeling part and not just think that attaining this level of technical facility (speed) is what makes your playing outstanding.

ESM do a "Jazz" mouthpiece in black as well as the "Blue Heaven" - according to the pdf on their website
http://www.esm-mouthpiece.de/index.php?id=13&lang=english
"compared to the traditional black designs, our "Heaven" models are easier to play, have plenty of volume and a fluid tone with a quick response."
So although they're the same price on Thomann's website http://www.thomann.de/gb/esm_ernst_schreiber.html it seems they're bit different in playability as well as colour.
If it's better than the Durga or that Sakshama you sold recently, then I'm definitely interested in getting my hands on one.

There seem to be a few interesting mouthpiece makers in Germany -
Kay Siebold - http://www.tittmann.de/SieboldMPs.html
AW Reeds - http://www.aw-reeds.de/mundstuecke/tenor-saxophon.html
Steamer Sound - http://www.steamersound.de/dasmpc.htm

Wow thats nice of you Wade.As you know i also respect and love your playing style and fine tone with great ideas streaming.As for me i kind of sing when i play.Ilove making melodys and little tu nes within a tune.I'm not a big Be Bop player,i love it but its to busy for me.Thats why Andy Sheppard,Jan Garbarek are my fave cats going.They truly know how to use space and there unique sound to make enchanting world music.Your so right about the speed thing,its what we say in a few notes that counts.Humour ,wit etc are so much a force.I hope i showed some in my quicky St Thomas.
