Now that just doesn't look right! You're right though, he can play it!

When I read the title I thought the thread was about a tenor who wasn't gay. :)

Methinks he doth protest too much. All my horns are gay. Who wants a sad horn.

The man can play - but a serious question - why bother to build a straight tenor?

I think he left it too close to the Aga... I think I'll try to melt mine straight too

Yes, I guess so! I rather like the built-in moisture collecting facility on a traditional saxophone.

It's OK if you wear wellies

Waders are best, more room for spit.
I saw a clip of Joe Lovano playing one of these. Wot is point?

Would the bend on a traditional saxophone make intonation more difficult, perhaps? And would he be getting quite as much attention if he was playing a bent one...?

He has a few odd looking tenors. A white enamel, ok not that odd but also a zebra one and a red and black checked. Apparently he's Scottish and he's getting quite a lot of attention at Pizza Express. I'd have a look if he was playing locally and cheaper.

It looks very similar. The reviewer seems to like it. Why do the write a glowing review then record the playing of it on a tuppenny ha'penny rig?

Makes no sense, maybe that's all he had available at the time.

You get some excellent recordings on YOUR tuppeny ha'penny facilities...

I'm not an endorser or trying to sell anything and I only have the two ha'pennies and I need them to rub together.
