We've been having some fun recording lately! I'm curious as to what this crowd prefers - do you like the jazzed-up pop cover, or the funk / groove?

Clean Bandit's "Rather Be"

Outkast by Keith Anderson (saxophonist for Prince)

(I'm playing bari in the first, tenor in the second one)

Great music Ryan. Its always a pleasure to hear the Cannonball Band perform. I also love listening to Kenji Aihara on guitar every chance I get. What a "monster" player he is as well. Can you tell us about the tenor Keith Anderson is playing?

I agree - Kenji's solo on Outkast is phenomenal. I could listen to it (especially the second chorus) over and over again.

That's a custom one-off model we made for Keith with black keys on a pearl white body. Since he plays for Prince, he wanted something unique and flashy so we went out on a limb for him. It's a beauty, and sounds really, really good. I had a great time playing it while setting it up for him!

I can do you one better: how about Pearl White body, gold keys, and gold inside the bell?

The pearl white / gold is a limited finish we made in the Big Bell Stone Series this year. They just recently hit stores, and I have it on good authority that a few of them have already made it into stores in the UK :)

I only know where they're headed as they leave the US, but I'm sure the folks at Dawkes will be glad to give you a real-time update of the location & availability.

Am I the only one put in mind of a leaky toilet U-bend with gold keywork?
I sure hope so. :) What about this special anniversary edition of the Yamaha Custom 875EX?

I deleted my post because it could be considered sexist. I grew up in the 50's and 60's and still have some of that stuff rattling around inside me. Sorry if anyone took offense.
